This morning as I did my morning walk to check out the different flower beds I came upon the Dahlia bed and with the recent rains and heat they were looking pretty sad. Over grown, lots of grass which needed to be pulled and the bed desperately needed mulch. I decided to roll up my sleeves, grab my garden gloves and dig in. Several hours later it was all groomed, cleaned, weeded and mulched.
I did cut back the Dahlias for they were out of control. I will do a better job at staking them next year as they begin to grow.
Here are some yellow Dahlias which I cut from the garden. They are beautiful.
