I was following along with Cee, mirroring whatever flower she was showing with something similar. But alas, I have never grown a dahlia and probably never will. My garden and I are just not getting along that well anymore. I really wish I had tried while I could, but I made a deal with my spine to stop all that bending and stooping. So instead, I grow indoor plants and things that hang from poles. Owen says he will put up another post or two next spring and I’ll have room to grow fuchsias again.
