In fall and winter, I love to see pompoms playfully bouncing on hat tops,
or dangling from the drawstrings of a snuggly cape or shawl...
But when spring and summer arrive, in the garden is where fluffy orbs look best!!
...particularly if they're the full and fanciful dahlia type!!
I captured this beauty of a bloom early one morning,
just as the sun crept over a wall of rose bushes...
...And like a cheerleader waving her fiery red pompoms,
this darling dahlia brought the sleeping garden to life!!
