'I'm so excited'
Do you by chance remember the Pointer SisterÂs release of, "IÂm So Excited" in 1982?
The Lyrics went "IÂm so excited (and the next line is) And I just canÂt hide it!"
Well 25 years later that excitement still exists, but IÂve taken it to a higher level, and the reason for this post. "I just canÂt hide my excitement". This was the first time I took a crack at a "Dinner Plate" and IÂm really excited.. We were away and when we got home that evening this is what I was greeted to. I didnÂt realize the flash wasnÂt on, so the pictures came out a little washed out.
But I did get a few others under more natural lighting conditions.
ItÂs a Kelvin Floodlight.
The full bloom was just over 9"
As you can see I went primarily with yellows in this area. Sorry about the lack of color.
Is this a freak or what? The first time IÂve ever had a double colored Dahlia. It was a tuber from last years plant that I started from seed.
This was kinda one of my pride and Joy ones. I was checking out my tubers just before Christmas and I found a couple ready for the compost pile. For some reason I took this tuber and the following one, spritzed with water, placed in plastic grocer bag and on the 29th of Dec. Saw some root structure and placed in a soil medium. These were the results.
Their both mixed boarder Dahlias from last years seed
Same as above different angle:
This photo is a little washed out because of the bright sun and not on right setting. IÂm picking up some prints this afternoon that will I hope show this Dahlia in a much better frame of lighting.
This plant was given to me last year by my brother Joe. Don't have a name so I call it Joe's Mauve. I sure hope the other prints comeout good as this one is really a beauty. Although all Dahlias are Beauties.
IÂll post up in a few days.
I hope you enjoy.
