In the empty lot behind my house there is a four-foot-high mound of yard waste. When I walked down the hill into that lot yesterday, I discovered that mound, and most of the property, is now covered by morning glory vines. I was even more surprised to see two dahlia plants coming out of the top of the mound!
Seeing the flowers reminded me of this week’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Cherry on Top. The directions: “This week, share a photo of a detail that makes a good thing even better.” The mound of yard waste is turning into compost, so that is a good thing. And seeing the dahlia plants growing from the top of the yard-waste was like seeing a cherry on top of an ice cream sundae!
