In the interest of including everyone while I'm doing this phototest blogathon, and so that Aunt Karen can finally see all three kiddos, here is Miss Lucy Sky. We visited the Dahlia gardens in Canby this August. It was pretty beautiful. I told each of the children to stand next to their favorite one. There were too many favorites. She was such a good gardener this summer. She got a mini greenhouse and some seed packets from Uncle Tom and Aunt Sally for her birthday, and grew her own zinnias and sunflowers from seed. Pretty impressive for a 3 year old. Of course, she was very proud of them and often cut bouquets for the table. We grew one Dahlia in the garden this summer called Thomas Edison. It is a brilliant dark purple. I thought it was a goner after the slugs ate it completely off, but it ended up having about 6 blooms before the frost got it entirely. Next summer perhaps we can plant some more. I know Lucy will be up for it!
