Dahlia Love

I love Dahlia, their flowers and the smell of their foliage.  I only have one variety, a “spider” dahlia, in my garden, but it is so lovely that I fall in love with it each year, and of course I take lots of photos.

However, I also like to edit my photos a little bit, and one of my favourite edits is simply to invert the photo, and guess what?  My dahlia looks totally awesome inverted, like some tentacled maw about to swallow you up.  What do you think?

  1. I don’t believe I heard of a dahlia before. I had to look one up to see how they look. 🙂

  3. I’m with Brian, it’s beautifully creepy. 🙂
    Are you able to keep the bulbs in the ground year round? I was going to plant them here, then realized I’d have to dig them up each time. Not sure I’m that committed.

    1. I stuck mine in a broken compost spinner – think two half bins of large garbage bin size, plonked some dirt in (cheap bag dirt from hardware store), shoved the tubers in and haven’t done another thing to them in the last 6 years. Ok, I do rarely water them in summer if it is really hot and they start to droop, but other than that I gignore them – They seem to like it 🙂 I know that traditionally folks lift them so they don’t rot, but as the bins are fairly high I think they drain well, which is why mine don’t.
      As you can tell – I am a dedicated gardener!!!!!!!

    1. ? Valerian? Think I am missing something in translation – please advise 🙂


      1. Sorry for the obscure reference (French comic book) it was just the most exotically beautiful thing I could think of.
