Look What I Found in My Garden
So, all last week, every time I gazed out my kitchen window at my garden, a strange sight caught my eye: one of my dahlias looked different. I’d planted a deep red/crimson dahlia, not a white one, and yet why did there seem to be white petals on the flower bush? The plant was too far away from the window to figure out what was going on with it, so I chalked it up to bad vision … until tonight, when I went out to inspect and see for myself.
Amazingly, on a bush full of dark red flowers, the plant had produced one single wild and beautiful hybrid flower (look closely at the photo and you’ll see what I mean), which is half crimson and half white. The boys and I marveled at the little miracle in our garden.
