I got a Breck's email today for the usual $25 off a purchase of $50 or more. Usually I just delete them, but today I was in the mood and I ordered these:
Rembrandt Dahlia Mixture
I thought these would make nice bouquets. . .something different for me to try.
A breakthrough in dahlia cultivation! Unusual, colourful striped and dotted blooms appear week after week from summer through fall and are fabulous when combined with large perennials and annuals. Sturdy stems stand artistically at the back of the border and bouquets
I've never seen this one before. I am not sure where I will plant it. At $12.99 for one bulb, it's pretty pricey so I would like to put it someplace where I can take good care of it. The colors fit in beautifully with my deck plantings so maybe I will let it grow up the deck lattice. My lattice is not the sunniest spot though, so I will have to think about this. I only bought one bulb so I doubt that I will get much impact this season. Does anybody grow it? What can you tell me about it?
Set trellises, fences and walls ablaze with colour! Old-fashioned climber grows 6-10' tall-striking as a living screen or ground cover. Vigorous plants are covered with 1 1/2" cup-shaped blooms of bold red and yellow from summer to frost. Prefers full sun. Lift in fall. Tropaeolum tuberosum #1 size bulbs.
Of course, I had to get a couple more cannas. I hope I don't already own these! (I always forget the ones I have.)
Black Knight Canna
It's time now for a big bowl of hot turkey noodle soup from Sunday's turkey leftovers.
Can you see the newspaper headline? They weren't kidding about the cold temps returning!
I think I will go work on my hand quilting so I can stay toasty warm under the big blanket.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
