yes, it’s the middle of october. but some of our late Dahlias are just getting started! let’s hope they all bloom before we get out first frost.
sadly, some of them succumbed to their own success — we had some heavy rain, and the blooms were so big, and collected so much water, that it toppled the stems. but most of them did well. next year, we hope to make them bloom a little earlier, so we’re not going so late into the season and risking bad weather at the end of the season.
