Demo Garden and other Stuff

The Utah Dahlia Society's Demonstration Garden 
has some fantastic blooms this year.  
It is always fun to see what is blooming each Saturday morning when we meet to work on the garden.

Blondee is a beauty this year!

There are many that should bloom by next week bringing more color and smiles.

My own garden gives me a chance to share those smiles with a friend.  
This year I tried several new varieties but so far Honeymoon (the orange one) is my favorite along with my usual favorites: Lovely Lana, Snoho Sonja, Alfred Grille and Embrace.

 Congratulations to Mark for another seedling bloom!  

Does this lid belong to you?  
It was left behind at Jan's house from our last pot luck.  
 Let us know so she can get it back to you.

Speaking of our potluck, many of us wanted the recipe for Kathy Young's brownies:
Beat together:
2 squares melted butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup chopped pecans
Spread in a greased and floured 9 X 13 baking pan, 350 for 20 minutes ( I baked mine for 25).
cream together:
 3 oz. cream cheese and 1/2 square butter 
 2 Tablespoons of buttermilk or more as needed
1/3 cup cocoa 
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. almond extra
3 cups of powdered sugar.
