dahlia explosion

Remember the sweet little dahlias I planted in the backyard in April?

Well, now they look like this.

Dahlias - 10.23.10
They've wreaked havoc on my orderly flower bed, but I'll take the mess for the hundreds of blooms I've enjoyed this year. And it's almost the end of October and the plants are still blooming! I love dahlias--they're such perky, happy flowers and I'm pleased to have gotten my money's worth. If they don't come back on their own in the spring, I'll definitely replace them.
