Dazzling Dahlias

Copy of DSCN3464
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.
