Today Is The First Frost Date And My Dahlias Are Just Now Starting To Bloom

In this region, the first frost date is October 10, today!, which means that any day after today might be the day that Mother Nature lowers the boom on every tender plant, with an uncompromising frost.  Please, I’m hoping, not anytime soon.  I was slow this past Spring in planting the roots, and my dahlias are just now starting to bloom.  The last couple of years I’ve bought roots from Hamilton Dahlia Farm in Michigan and have been very happy with the roots they shipped to me.  And the owner, Janet Koop Brondyke, on the phone, is very helpful and very pleasant to talk with.

My photography is not adequate to really capture the magnificence of these flowers.  Sort of like trying to capture on film the Rocky Mountains or the Pacific Ocean.
