Three or More!!!

Today I am joining
Tam
for

I thought that you would enjoy
a few of the Dahlia's
from my garden.

As you know, the Bunnies have done their share
of damage to my garden this year.

I've never had them munch down a Dahlia before...

So I am especially excited to see these blooms!


I originally planted about
a dozen sets of tubers.
I believe about half
actually survived.

Somebody please remind me
to use chicken wire next spring.

love your post. I tried Dahlia bulbs but must not have fed them enough...they choked up a few blooms but The Texas heat got the best of them...I'll try harder next time.

Hi Robyn! Your dahlias are gorgeous! I just love the different colors. Sorry about the bunnies destroying some. Thanks for stopping by. You know, we are the very first one to build a wet deck here. It was kinda experimental for the pool people since it's the first they have done. They had to redo the pipes 3 x b/c John wasn't happy with the previous ones, LOL....Christine
