Again....a variety that I've shown before....very popular at the shows and the Farmer's Market....."Neon Splendor"....View attachment 668

That is so refreshing for me to look at! Yes, you were gone a long time, Rusty!

I know, I drive people away talking about the weather and such nonsense. Just ignore me and show us dahlia pictures!

Ah, no you don't Steve!
I always read what you say about the weather before I check the weather page! It's much easier for me to let you do all the digging. :)

Steve....You have helped me get thru the bad weather time with your photos as well and you and I know how hard it is to have Dahlias and dahlia tubers in these Northern climates......keep on posting and please keep showing your beautiful photos.....Thanks Steve.... Rusty

Your "Neon Splendor" is striking, Rusty. I see that you have other flowers growing among your dahlia beds. That makes the flowers even prettier.
Thanks Lynn....I do have red Amaranth and a few other plants in my Dahlia bed...the amaranth comes up volunteer every year.
