  1. Joshua,

    Your blooms are wonderful and your photographs are spectacular – such a great mix of colors. I think I like the lilac time dahlia and the cleome the best. Time for me to branch out in new plant directions. Thank you so much for the inspiration!

    Your garden looks stunning! I just love that firecracker vine – we’re growing it along an ugly chain link fence in our backyard and it does a great job of covering it up until we can take it out!
