For My Dad August 16, 2006

Filed under: Personal — bonniep @ 10:16 pm

When we moved to our new house in WA, we finally had a backyard! And my dad flew from Cleveland with some of his amazing dahlia bulbs to plant in said backyard. First one came up…and then weeks later the second came up. We thought for sure the third would never poke through, but finally it did! The growing pattern seems to be much different than it is in Cleveland. Once the stems were visible, leaves and buds soon followed. And once the buds open, each flower shot up. So here are some pictures of the flowers; for my dad.

 

That last one shows how short the biggest blooming dahlia is (it was the one we thought wouldn’t live) and beyond it you can see the super tall middle red one and then at the far end next to the house the medium height white one. Thanks dad!
