Hope the dahlias I planted get big like that. Having some trouble with the dahlias as gophers got under the seedlings and destroyed a few of them. Gophers do not eat dahlias I hear, but the tunnel was right under the seedlings. I have more to plant though, as I potted more than I need.  Wish me l luck

That's gorgeous!  It reminds me of the flowers Hallie put on John Wayne's casket in "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance."  Gave me a happy moment for the day, I just love that movie. (I'm so embarassed at how nerdy I can be) :)

Sharon, oooh, what a beautiful flower with Bellina Marie just a groovin' alongside.  I can't wait.  My Sister has begun to plant the dahlias in her gardens, she has more room for the big flowers than I do near my house.  I will be planting lots out near the bees in my areas, but there will be many.  I think combined, with the open faced and others there are about 100 plants, eeks!!!!  That is a lot of holes to dig, hee,hee.  The proper germination of these seeds was incredible, I think every one I sowed set a seedling, wow!!!  You will have to explain how you gathered the seed, it looked just like the petals of the flowers to me, but that didn't make too much sense.  Good going girl!!!

I think white flowers are the prettiest of all, and the night glow of white is incredible.  Beautiful and most wonderful day in this incredibly beautiful life we all live and share.  Cindi
