Today is ABC Wednesday, once again. Seems hard to believe that we are already on ‘D’. Today was a bit of a conflict for me as I enjoyed the couple of Wordless Wednesdays I did and it is also Garden Bloggers Bloom Day over at Carol’s Place, everything seems to be happening on Wednesday. Wordless Wednesday is pretty self-explanatory and Bloom Day is where a bunch of Bloggers take pictures of what’s blooming in their garden and write a post about them. The garden I am working in right now doesn’t have too many flowers during this season and it is the same at the Estate. Everybody is at their beach houses so it doesn’t make sense to do a lot for summer.
‘D’ is for Dahlia, of course. It is one of my favorite flowers and kind of an aristocrat of the summer garden season. This is one of the ‘mixed’ Dahlias I ordered and I am quite happy with it. I was a little tired yesterday after going to the Kenny Loggins concert and doing the stonework all day. I was determined to finish and made it to the end. I fixed all of the really sunken areas of the granite terrace but I have a feeling the owner is going to want some of the not so sunken areas fixed now that they are more apparent. That’s fine with me. Stonework is not the easiest way to make a living but when you’re done at least you have constructed something solid.
Here are a couple of other posts I have made on Dahlias:
