If you need a blog topic, simply take a photograph of a beautiful flower or a feature in your community and you are on your way to writing another blog. A photowalk provides some exercise and you may be able to set aside the problems of the moment as you focus your camera and your attention on something of interest.

This unusual dahlia was photographed at one of our favorite day trip destinations, Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. You may wish to plant some dahlias in your garden next spring.

Good Sunday morning Ms. Dolores and Roy Kelley -

Thanks for sharing the early morning beauty.  Our flowers are about gone.  Debbie's roses are still in bloom but she's yanked the summer plants up or cut them back for the season.

Our new neighbors have the most beautiful dahlia garden. He brought us a huge bouquet when we moved in during September.  Oh, and the deer must love them too - he has a large fence around the garden. :)

Good idea, Roy Kelley , to plant some Dahlias in our flower beds next Spring. They are so beautiful. I can appreciate the advice in your post on ways to post more. When I look at  your points, 2,736,357, I am in shock. Happy for your success. Know it was a lot of your time, energy, and dedication.

The leaves are starting to fall (along with our temps), but this is a good time of year to photograph some of the indoor gardens like the Bellagio Conservatory. Their holiday display is always over the top.

I hope you enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday. Have a great Monday and a most productive week.

Posted by Roy Kelley (Realty Group Referrals) over 3 years ago

Love the dahlias, Roy. You do an excellent job of sharing the beauty around you. Happy Monday.
