Floral Friday – First Dahlia

Floral Friday - First Dahlia

My garden has it’s first dahlia flowering and I thought I would share it with you for Floral Friday. I am really looking forward to seeing more in the months to come.

Over the last couple of years, I haven’t had a lot of luck with my dahlias. There are about 10 different ones here and initially, only a couple of them flowered. When I learned that I needed to feed them, well that made a massive difference. So far about half of them have buds, which is great.

First Dahlia

This is the first one that has come out. It is sort of hiding in all the leaves, but there are many others that will be easier to see and photograph.

Dahlias are beautiful flowers and I love it when they start to flower. I really want to get a lot of them in my garden and this year when I head to Country Dahlias I need to make sure I take some cash with me so I can buy more. She only takes cash and I know there are a few that she has that I would love to grow. Will have to look up when they are open.

I hope you like my first dahlia.

  1. Dahlias always remind me of my Grandfather. They’re fond memories of watching and helping him in the garden when I was young. Planting the Tubers and thrilling in the amazing differences in the flowers when they bloomed.

    1. What a lovely memory. Apparently my grandfather grew them, but I don’t remember. The flowers are amazing, I love them, one of my favourites.

    Most of our flowers were covered with the red mud rain that fell a few nights ago. I took some shots yesterday of a beautifully formed red rose. I didn’t notice the mud spots when I took the photo. But when editing in PS they were very apparent and ruined the image entirely.

    It looks like this flower escaped the red mud rain.

    1. Thank you Don.

      I have the same problem, everything covered in red mud. Still trying to get rid of it. This flower was hidden under some leaves.
