A couple of years ago, I bought a bag of dahlia tubers at Home Depot. Then I put them on the back porch and there they sat for the next year.
This spring, after noticing that they had grown green shoots right in the bag, I decided to plant them in a pot on my deck. And they grew!
And they flowered. But I didn't stake them carefully, and the first bud to open was blooming with it's face on the deck. So I cut it and brought it inside.
And spent a half hour taking photos of it. Because that's what I do. ;)
Other than that, it's been a whirlwind week. I'm thinking I may take next week off from posting, to see of I can get a handle on all the things that I need to do around here. I'll see you In September. :)
