Dahlia Update - Part II

Dahlias are divisive.  You either love them or hate them.  I confess, they weren't a flower I liked very much...until I saw John's patch.


Now I can't wait for dahlia season to come so I can see all those brilliant blooms.


With ex-hurricane Bertha threatening to take down every plant in her path, I grabbed a few snaps before the worst of the wind struck.


There were so many different colours, shapes, and sizes I had to show the photos to you in two instalments.

Thanks again to John for letting us enjoy his beautiful dahlias....


As for Bertha,  she wasn't nearly as fierce as we had expected her to be, thank goodness!

  2. I love the very top one best. I have several different ones here now but I'm not very good at overwintering them, john clearly is :-)
