Flowers for the day....

I think I've finally found the best room in my house to use for pictures... the bathroom! All the walls are white, so there is lots of indirect light....

This is a Papageno dahlia. Usually they have a bit more brownish and orange streaks to the petals, but this blossom broke a few days ago and has been pointing straight down. Without the sun on the blossom, the colors do not develop fully.
Good news! Dad is coming home from the hospital today! He had a small heart attack, but there appears to be no lasting damage. They did not have to put in stints or do any surgery. They should be back at the farm by early afternoon, and he will be okay to travel in two weeks. We are all very relieved.

I am sooooooooooo glad to hear that your dad is doing well. That must have been terrifying. And being far away when things like that happen SUCKS! I am thinking about all of you today!
