Dahlias

I’m always going on about zinnias–and they ARE beautiful–but it occurs to me that I might have given dahlias short shrift in the process. Three giant lavender blossoms grace my table as I write this–I did not intend to cut them, but (gardening lesson #422), the larger varieties need to be staked because they become top heavy and the stems break. They make a very nice cut flower anyway, and you can bet I’ll be adding dahlias next year. These are growing in a pot; when the season is over, I will transfer the bulbs to the flowerbed and mulch to keep them snug and warm through a Spokane winter.

You know all about Spokane winters. :)

I will soon be starting my next Texas McKettrick book soon, “Garrett”. Garrett’s heroine, Julie, is a cook–named long before I read the book or the movie was released–so I’ll be able to include my own new interest–cooking.

Lots of work today, so I’ll make this short.

Until tomorrow.
