My dahlia definately agrees with Rodney Dangerfield, "I don't get no respect". I have to admit it is not my favorite flower, doesn't evn make my top 5. But when I look around in my garden in summer after the first big bloom of roses and clematis, what's blooming? Not much. But over in the corner the dahlia is blooming it's heart out. Nice big blooms too, nothing wimpy about it. So here's to the dahlia, a welcome sight in the middle of summer!
