Dazzling Dahlias

Four dahlia bulbs were planted a couple of years ago.  I see three coming up, but only this one is blooming.  One has buds, and is also in direct sunshine, but no flowers yet.  Why, oh, why?

Dahlia poses in my version of a bud vase.
The turtle cut-out on top helps the single flower stem stay erect.

This is what the flowers from the top photo look like a week later.
It is tough to age gracefully, but these are doing pretty good.

  1. dazzeling indeed ! love the vase !

  2. You get beautiful flowers Susan!

  3. I honestly feel that I am a better potter (maker of things from clay) than I am a gardener!
    Though I do keep on trying. Potting and gardening are both very meditative and calming to my soul.
    More gardening in the summertime, and more clay-making in the winter.
