End of Autumn

Dahlia is one of my favorite  care free flowers.
You just plant its tuberous root once and it multiples year after year.
Most of the dahlias in our garden have finished their season already.
This tree dahlia is the last dahlia to bloom in Autumn and
finishes with the first frost.
We had a hail and sleety Winter-like weather today.
May is nearly over now.

Wish has come true

Several years ago, I found a lovely house with lots of
pretty toadstools in its garden while I was walking
around our neighborhood.
And before the following autumn, that house was sold
and its garden was fully re-landscaped.
There is no pretty toadstools in that garden any more.
But they are here in my driveway.
How they came about is mystery yet their pollen could
travel with cats and dogs.
