Rain, rain, come again

Just when I was trying to figure out how to put in an irrigation system (better known in my  small garden as a soaker hose), it started raining. And raining. We had 4 inches in three days.

And now it’s raining again. I personally love it. My garden has never been so happy. My grass has never been so high.

My weeds have never been… Oh,forget that.

The dahlias are starting to really shine. We have new pink ones, orange and a pretty red with white tips. No blue ones. We planted them, but we don’t have them yet. Tried this a few years ago but the blue ones didn’t bloom. Here’s to blue ones this year.

If you are growing dahlias, now is the time to be pinching those buds. You’ll notice they grow in groups of three. Pinch the outer two so the nutrients go into making that center bud bigger.

I’m wondering if I can save those buds. Maybe they have seeds inside…

To be continued…
