Makes all the Hard Work Worthwhile...

This is when we most enjoy the gardens- when a bus load of folks from the local Assisted Living places and/or Nursing Homes come out. This week we've had groups from 3 different homes & everyone went away with an armload of blooms to enjoy.

You have a big hart Plantlady. I get a kick out of it when my neighbors send over their apartment dewling relitives to see my garden.

What a wonderful thing. You have some whoppers. Do you have to do anything to keep their big heads up?

One of our criteria in breeeding is strong stems- if it doesn't hold it's head up & is a great bloom it gets 2 years & if it still doesn't hold its head up it's gone- if it's a so-so bloom it's yarded out immediately.
The viagra didn't work on the dahlias >:)
