Oreti Dandy 3

Oreti Dandy Dahlia.
Other forms of life
Shower the earth
With beauty

Dahlias grow well in full sun to partial shade. 

They should get six hours of sunlight a day. 
In warmer climates afternoon shade can help the flowers by keeping them cooler.
Afternoon shade can also improve the color and reduce fading in some blooms.

Margaret Haggo 2

Margaret Haggo. Opening scene.
Freshly burst
From close knit cocoon
Open to spirit’s light

Try to plant in a location that enjoys full sun and remember to water moderately. 

Keep in mind when planting that Margaret Haggo is thought of as tender, 
so remember to wait until your soil is warm and the night time 
temperature is well above freezing before moving outside.

Hubbard Glacier 2

Ages to get here
Brief moment to kiss the sea
Now for a swim

Hubbard Glacier is a glacier located in eastern Alaska and part of Yukon Canada.
Map of Hubbard Glacier
Hubbard Glacier, Alaska squeezes towards Gilbert Point on May 20, 2002 The glacier is close to sealing off Russell Fjord at top from Disenchantment Bay at bottom.

The longest source for Hubbard Glacier originates 122 kilometres (76 mi) from its snout and is located at about 61°00′N 140°09′W, approximately 8 kilometres (5 mi) west of Mount Walsh with an altitude around 11,000 feet (3,400 m). A shorter tributary glacier begins at the easternmost summit on the Mount Logan ridge at about 18,300 feet (5,600 m) at about 60°35′0″N 140°22′40″W.

Before it reaches the sea, Hubbard is joined by the Valerie Glacier to the west, which, through forward surges of its own ice, has contributed to the advance of the ice flow that experts believe will eventually dam the Russell Fjord from Disenchantment Bay waters. ~ Bernard
