Sunsets, like childhood, are viewed with wonder not just because they are BEAUTIFUL but  because they are fleeting ~

Pink and Red Beauties

Just some beautiful spring flowers I captured.
The Begonia Dragon Wing red, ‘Begonia x hybrida’, is a beautiful shade plant growing up to 15 inches tall with a a spread of up to 18 inches. Dragon Wing Pink Begonias perform very well in the landscape with excellent heat tolerance and garden performance. This plant is ideal for hanging baskets on the front porch or in large containers. Begonia Dragon Wings prefer planting beds that are well drained and organic-rich.

Dahlia-Dahlias are easy plants to grow and yield beautiful blooms from mid-summer through fall. In many respects, “dahlia culture” is similar to “tomato culture.” If you can grow tomatoes in your garden, you can successfully grow dahlias. The following notes will help you to add spectacular blooms and brilliant color to your garden!

Well I had to do it!! I tried 5x tis year to get up it and finally scored !! Yeah! This is a old fire tower close to where I live. It is about 250 feet in the air ugg. I also am going to show you a video of the tower. I did not make this, but I wanted you to see what I did just to capture these photos. I did freak a little ,so I had to hurry I was shaking.

Now here are the beautiful pictures that I captured. I hope you enjoy! I sure did once I was down on the ground and my legs were not shaking. There is some that is not my greatest photography , but still worth it.
