Once Again


dahliasI’m crazy for dahlias, but no matter how hard I try to grow them they never do well.  Dahlias need lots of sun and my yard is shade challenged!

DahliasSo, I get my dahlia fix by making an annual trek to Endless Summer Flower Farm where  at least 250 varieties flourish.

They come in all sizes from small

to medium

to almost as big as your head.

They are so perfectly formed and the texture so waxlike you have to touch the flower to make sure it’s not artificial.

And the colors….well, it seems they are limitless!

I’m thinking next year I’ll try again to grow my own, this time in pots.

  1. The dahlias are so beautiful and so diverse! I do not have any and asked to have some planted next spring. I must admit though that I know nothing about caring for them.

  2. OMG–one of my favorite places and favorite flowers! Regarding your shady yard, If you haven’t visited Fernwood Nursery and Gardens in Montville, it’s worth a trip next season for shade-loving/tolerant plant ideas. They have an interesting blog, too.

You make my day with your comments
