Just Need to Wait

A Dahlia is Blossoming!!!

The Dahlia bulbs in our front garden were planted this spring.  We planted bulbs saved from last year & also bulbs purchased this spring.  The saved bulbs would have coral colored flowers & the newer bulbs- pink flowers.  The coral Dahlia have added color to our garden for the past month. 

How exciting to see the green sprouts appear & leaves form from the pink Dahlia bulbs.  Then, there was the "watch the plants become taller" time period.  One day buds appeared on the tall stalks.  When would they blossom???  That was the question.

Today, August 28th, a beautiful flower opened! The anticipation is over!  Yes!  There are more buds to follow.

We will Enjoy!

They are such big beautiful blooms! We felt the same way about the Mexican petunia. It was exciting when it finally bloomed! Enjoy your week! Hugs

Pam- Me too! :)

Lavender Dreamer- I've never seen a Mexican petunia. Is it grown from a bulb?
