It's finally here! The day we've all been waiting for! The Dahlias are starting to bloom in my backyard flower farm! So many of my perennials in the established borders are already past their prime but the cut flower gardens are starting to shine!
I've just come in from feeding the flowers, doing some pest control and snapping a bouquet of images!
The flowers were looking especially photogenic today after getting a much needed drink from last nights rainstorm. It's been four months since the Dahlias were planted and each day since then has been worth waiting for this day!
Keep in mind that none of these are in ' full bloom ' yet...! Look at the center of each flower and you can tell they still have a ways to go!
The range of colors is mind boggling...
Dahlias today! Sunflowers tomorrow!
I'm sharing these blooms with Heidi's Country Homemakers Hop!
