Dahlia season

It's dahlia season and that is a big time for our household. Dahlias are my DH's hobby/obsession.
We have over 80 plants in our front yard as our backyard doesn't get any sun. These are 2 of the smaller variety. The come as big as a dinner plate. During August and September he will be
entering them in fairs and competitions. Sometimes I think they get more attention than I do! LOL.

Karen,
I don't think I told you that I grew up with a DAD who was heavily into Dahlia's. He still dabbles but not like I remember. And I do remember them being bigger than plates, but so pretty. Will he let you fill your home with blooms? If so...I want to see pictures! I am sure they are just gorgeous.

Hugs..for not being taken care of tho..I used to be a golf widow!

Blessings..Lorena
