Flower of the Month: Dahlia

Back in the heat of summer I bought a few dahlia tubers out of a sale bin at a local garden center.  I had just built some new raised beds and wanted to put some plants in even if I wasn’t sure of having any success.  Well, the dahlias win the recognition this month for their performance despite drought and unbearable heat!

When I returned home from a week of travel yesterday the newcomers had rewarded me with some pretty blooms…

I love the spidery blooms and apparently the bees do too…
