I thought I would share some pictures of my first blooms of this summer. The Garden Wonder dahlia was actually blooming by the end of June!

I'm jealous Linda. I just spotted my first buds this weekend. I am way behind you. I have been waiting for people to start posting their blooms - thanks for sharing they look great.

Thanks for compliments everyone! I started most of my dahlias in the house in March so they are much further ahead than they would have been.

I really like Akita too! That one was an impulse buy at Walmart and turned out really well. It has 3 more large buds and are all starting to open up.

I have a few others blooming too, I will try to get some pictures of them soon.
