"Who would have thought it possible that a tiny little flower could preoccupy a person so completely that there simply wasn't room for any other thought." ~ Sophie Scholl.
I am captivated by the dahlia flower. I wintered 25+ bulbs and bought another 15 more at the nursery. The tubers have been potted up, and are waiting for warmer days. I am hoping that they all sprout. In the past I've not had very good luck with the dahlias I dug up, saved and planted in June. This year I'm giving them ahead start in the greenhouse.
