Photo recap from intercessor
Oohhhh. Who is Emma Rose? Your new baby???? How precious. I would take her over dahlias anyday. :-)
Oh Emma Rose takes the blue ribbon! What a beautiful bright-eyed baby. I'd say M ID Light Blend of Pink and white LOL! She's a doll, even prettier than Big Wow. Congratulations Intercessor and Mr/Mrs Cessor too.
Your dahlia bed and other flowers turned out so very nice. Such a tidy neighborhood too.
Wow on everything!
Love that pic of the cutest baby! Yes, I would take that baby over dahlias any day for sure. LOL
Who could resist that cutie?
But your flowers beds look great. They sure did very well. Also love the hydrangeas along the house. They look healthy too.
Wow! Great show, intercessor!! My dahlia bed is almost the exact same shape....your bed looks so much better than mine though. I definitely need to take a planting lesson from your pics! LOL
Emma Rose is gorgeous! If I could be guaranteed I'd have a girl, I'd have another baby in a heartbeat! ;o)
Looks great! Congratulations on the baby and the flowers.
What helenium do you have there?
You had Babylon Bronze and Bonaventure in there I thought?
What was your purple one?
Things are slow here now too - I'd start covering them up at night to lengthen your season.
Al, the tag says helenium Red. It grew great this year. I was suprised by the nice form, since some of the photos of it showed a more random look. It has two stems and each half has a slightly different color. So I don't know if it is one or two?
The dahlias are Bonaventure, Big Wow, Lilac Time (sp?) and the other was suppose to be Babylon Bronze but those looked more like a faded, pale orange. So not sure I got a miss label.
I am not going to grow so many that close again, it was my first year at Dahlias.
Maybe baby will like Dahlias too.?

All gorgeous - flowers & baby & house & nighborhood. :-) Fox River Velley? You are not that far from me. lol. I might come kidnap that baby and Dahlias. lol.
Al, Very pretty Helenium. What's the name of that green & gold grass on the left behind the Helenium. Very pretty. Do you collect seeds of those Helenium, Al & Intercessor? Hint...hint....hint....
This is my first year growing Helenium or anything for the most part. So not sure about the seed, I'll see what happens though.
Thats about it for the Dahlias. I only grew 4 colors this year. I know they are not very exciting but would anybody be interested in a trade? :*} Heck I will give some away...
Ok one last picture of my flowerbed, the Aster Aalerts are blooming and the Aster Purple Dome just starting.
I have seen Red Shades sold as Helena Red Shades - where did you buy it - because I know ALL the spots.
Glad you posted the Alert because I have that and wondered if it was right because it wasn't really red like they said.
You got a lot of flowers on Lilac Time, mine opened late and has only had a few on it - certainly an A size.
Bronze doesn't really mean orange - I would say that Babylon Bronze is right, very much the color of Ferncliff Copper I have listed as bronze.
I really liked Bonaventure - gotta be in your top 5 too right?
I would probably be up for a Big Wow or Babylon Bronze.
How old is Emma Rose! Your Dahlia's are beautiful, but we need an update on the baby!
