Dahlia Updates-numerous pictures

Finally the dahlia's are beginning to reveal the beauty held within the many tubers that were planted by my daughter-in-law and spouse while I was traveling new adventures in Colorado.  Please enjoy the many blooms captured by the "wallpaper" machine.

Some of my favorite things....tractors, dahlia's,  and the U.S.A.!!

I'm sure a hammer will fix it!
Amazing what water will do!

Shadow got grass seeds under her skin and had to be shaved, but the new fur isn't coming back very quickly.
