Pretty Reminder....



Good news!  The japanese beetles seem to have withdrawn after the aggressive and insistent counter-strikes of a few weeks ago.  Look at that healthy dahlia.  ::smile::

More good news!!  There are still 24 hours to go to the DSH Pandora review and register a comment for a chance to win a sample.

What a beautiful photograph!

that dahl is gorgeous! Is it a dinnerplate dahl? I just saw a Park Princess this weekend that looked to be 14" in diameter, like Steroid Dahlia!

Glad the beetles were routed. I hate those things and rejoice in murderizing them whenever I can!

Thanks, guys.

The dahlia is not dinner plate, but a just touch oversized. Palm-sized, maybe? Those gigantor ones are nearly otherworldly, aren't they?

I did murdelate. Heaven help me, I did murdelate, and someone (Kant?) will disagree, because action was taken on the "needs of the many" principle. Fine, not even that. The "needs of the plants (and I know there are more of you out there anyway)" principle.

I bury my head in the sand, I suppose. Along with the beetle carcasses.

Whose noon? Am I in time - it may be 12.30pm there. Rats! Beetles! Vermin expletives of all kinds!

Hictific! (that's my charming captcha.)

ScentScelf said...

You were already in!! No worries.

Expletives appreciated. They're...hictific!

A quick off-ish-off-topic question:

Do you dig up your dahl tubers or do you leave them in-ground? I'm usually too lazy to dig stuff up, which is why I shy away from dahls and their ilk...

criznickety! I missed the Pandora draw. Ah, well...will enter the next!
