Dahlia Rip City
My dahlias are starting to flower, and much as I love the colour in the garden, I love it even more in the house. Usually just a single stem in a simple vase. This flower head is the biggest 'Rip City' I've ever seen. It's taken about five days to slowly unfurl and show off its deep red velvety petals. I brought it inside yesterday, in the hope that a little more consistent warmth would do the trick. Nearly there.
