Go figure! I decided to bail off Photoblog and the site starts working like clockwork. I do feel like I need more stability moving forward, but I also love the group and the sharing so I'll be posting on occasion and watching you all whenever I can. I’m glad I didn’t bail completely.

The Dahlia Diary:

The dahlia is not a flower that shows up in May. In fact, it will be mid-July before I see the results of today planting. I've decided that Dahlias are my favorite flower, right behind Zinnias. I have a lot to learn about growing these gorgeous flowers. I’d Like to grow dahlias, like Andi grows orchids.

Here in Idaho these tubers need to be dug up every year, but you generally get more tubers to plant the following year. Anyway, I'm going to start journaling my progress and trails along the way. I'll keep you all posted. I expect to learn a lot This year.

Today I started planting my dahlia tubers. The ground is finally warmed up and the snow is almost gone from nearby mountain.

Most of the tubers I bought had some signs of growth. I've had years when I planted and nothing came up. Fingers are crossed.
