We have had some heavy rain for a couple of days now so I have been cutting some of the blooms to keep the stalks from breaking. Here is the bouquet I brought in the house yesterday. It includes Vassio Meggos, Wyn's Bewitched, Wildwood Marie, Wyoming Wedding, Alloway Candy, Pennhill Watermelon and Orchid Lace.

I take it that Orchard Lace is the one on the very right, bottom? That seems much larger then I thought OL would be! How do you like that variety? Mine is struggling this year, so I may not be able to give it a fair evaluation first hand.

Here is another picture of Orchid Lace. The flower is about 5 1/2 inches. I love the color of this flower! The plant needs to be staked well as mine always wants to sprawl and the flowers always seem to be facing downward.

One more picture in the vase, you can see how it faces down.

Beautiful dahlias Linda. I have some that face down too due to lack of getting them staked properly. I tell myself every year I'm going to stake better but never seem to. Judy

Thank you! Good assessment.

Please post that Sir Alf Ramsey again when it finishes opening up... I still haven't managed to get one of these in my garden yet, so I'll have to admire yours from afar!
