Default First of the season....

My dahlias have been tardy this year. I moved most of them to a location in the backyard where we can enjoy them more from inside the house.....problem is, my wife's dogs share the same territory, WHICH.....meant I could not put down slug bait, so the slugs had a smorgasbord at first, eating the young shoots. Too big now, but way behind schedule. I'll have to rethink this again. More colors coming

PS: That is real rain, the weatherman was spot on his prediction today!

This one is lovely, I really like it. The rain adds to the flower, but really the flower would be beautiful even without it.

Nice shot!
A little salt goes a long way on slugs!
Mine got eaten by a ground hog last year along with my roses and tomato plants. Looked out back on the deck and that critter was perched in the flower box chowing down and not timid at all. Had to run right to him to run him off and of course after setting a trap he didnt come back, got a few possums though!
