Celebrate life, people, cuz this huge branch of my way-too-leggy dahlia snapped nearly completely off last month, but I staked it up a bit (to take the weight off a neighboring citrus) and not only did the branch not dry up (tho it did try every time it got a little warm), but it even bloomed.

And in situ before putting it out of its misery pruning it back.
