The grand dahlia experiment is about over. Last spring I planted three tubers. In September I had one flower bloom. And today, in late October, just after an evening and early morning of below freezing temps, I can report and show Dahlia #2.
It’s a beauty and worth the wait.
With the coming of frost, is the grand dahlia experiment now over? Not quite. There are tubers to harvest, divide, store and to be replanted in the spring. Each step is something new for me and an opportunity to learn about and enjoy a small part of the Creator’s world.
