Since it is January, I thought I would reminisce a bit about one of my favorite flowers.  Dahlias.

They never disappoint.

 Dahlias come in all sizes and colors. 

 

 They aren’t hardy, so their tubers must be dug up before the first frost to be replanted the following year.

But they are so worth the trouble. 

They are one plant that I put in every year because they are so dependable and rewarding.

    This is the first year I grew Dahlias and they were fantastic, I dug them all up put them in the garage to dry and forgot about them. I will have to buy new ones for next year. Beautiful photos of the ones you grew. Happy gardening.
