The Dahlias

Check out the Dahlias; they finally bloomed!!! I planted this first yellow one as a tiny seedling. It has only shown the one blossom.

The second plant Cathy Garner planted last year. I took it in for the winter, stored it in the basement, then in March brought it upstairs and began to water and care for it. Branches grew from old existing stems, but they didn't look too sturdy, however I planted it outside anyway. It flourished in a wild, wandering way, but this week, the ungainly plant started to open up.
