Delicious dahlias

Went to buy some groceries. I was not looking to buy flowers - yet. It's still too cool to plant annuals in the garden, so I've been holding off going to garden centers to buy. I have been to look and admire, but need to wait to buy.
However, just outside the grocery store, they were unpacking some lovely dahlias (among other flowers) and I couldn't resist.
Dahlias are my hubby's favourite flower. I don't really have a favourite - I love them all!

I have no idea where Spring is this year. Sun comes out, I buy plants. It snows, I put flats of plants in garage. I've done it 3 times in the past 3 weeks. Have a great week.

Thanks Beck for your compliment. But I have to let you in on a little secret. I was too lazy to get my camera and take a real true pic of my dahlias, so I just snitched one off the net. Shhhhh - don't tell. (the colours are nearly the same anyway).

Judy - Yikes! I thought our weather was gross and disgusting! Yours seems to be worse! Just when you think is safe - wham! Back go the flats in the garage. Ah well - shouldn't be too long now, and we'll all be complaining about the heat. LOL!

My Dad loves dahlias to. He used to have a garden full in his younger days. They are always so cheering, aren't they. I have some I planted in March, can't wait to see them bloom.

I've updated my "Legends" post to include the nams of the legends, if your interested. Hope you have a great Mothers Day.

Hi Cheryl - I hope you'll post some pics of your dahlias when they bloom.

Thanks, JeanMac, I will enjoy them.

Hi Judy, I did go back to the legends and ha - should have known who they were!
Happy Mother's Day to you too!
