Here are pics of my dahlias.. I fell in love with dahlias last year when I only had one plant... this year I went wild and bought a whole huge collection from Swan Island Dahlias, and then I went to Walmart and bought another whole bunch as they were so cheap there... so here they are...I don't have the names straight on them so just enjoy the pics.... Dottie
Great photos and dahlias, dottie, yes it is easy to find something to collect. Maybe there will be some trading going on after the season is finished so stay tuned.
Of course, you sound like me!
Collect all you can!
Wow, looking good so far!
And to answer your question, Can you have too many? Of course not!
Your nest doesn't look empty to me, Dottie. It is filled with gorgeous dahlias! And your fence is great.
If you ever find you have too many dahlias there is only one solution - trade some to make room for more. LOL
Dottie - lovely dahlias. I love everyone. The fig leaf fence - is it made in the shape of a circle or am I imagining things? Take a closer photo of it for us - please?
Oh my, I like that!
You are very creative!
Those fences look so nice. They would be good to tie dahlias up by.
Ooooooh, Dottie! What a couple of cutie pies!!!! Great fence too! :-)
Hi emtnest and all, I am new here, invited by another dahlia friend, but I have to try out my first post at Dave's by saying I LOVE YOUR TWIG FENCE! It is a thing of absolute beauty, let alone your flowers and your impish young helpers- so cute.
I'm sure I will enjoy the many photos and dahlia posts as I learn my way around.
Thank you Poochella... we have our home up for sale.... I think the market went soft when we put it up....I love doing twig fences...and stuff like that..I am currently making a birdbath....Dottie
Oh my, right you are: it's a frilly beaut! Another beauty to add to your bevy LOL. I looked back and really like that red/orange tipped and edge in yellow- very dramatic. Should know the name, but I don't.
And that little collarette in bright pink/white with bright yellow center- so cute! Your collection of the varying purple/whites is a great photo too- shows how different flowers can be off one plant. And more than ever, I adore that fig twig fence you've created- it's purely wonderful and I hope you take it with you when your house sells.
Poochella.... are you on the garden web site also? I keep seeing your name there...no bites on house, might just have to keep those twig fences ...lol Dottie
Yes, Gardenweb is my second home. Anywhere there's dahlia info I migrate eventually.
I think people are just a little bit frightened of the outrageous housing market popping its bubble. Don't know about Chico, but up here the realtors will say there's no such thing as a bubble, but tell that to someone with a multi-thousand dollar mortgage due each month. Our neighbors have had their house on the market since July. First price drop was an even 100K. Ouch. They've had two people look at it, as of a month ago. They are going to have to go even lower I'm afraid, if they really want to sell it.
LOL Someone needs to hit me with a shovel: I just now got your screen name; LOL was going to call you Em then thought, maybe they're an EMT? silly me.
I love your rooster! Handsome fellow. I hope you're not in the same boat as me by adding high nitrogen late in the season, or maybe you didn't do it so late. I'm still inquiring about its effects on tuber storage. Will let you know what I hear.
