WHO ARE THEY?
This is just an introduction to the characters. They are the ones who will write the real "story" here over the months before the snow flies. They will grow. Be tween-agers. Get mature. Age and get ready for winter. These Dahlias grow to be different sizes. If you see a cage around them now, when you come back another time, they will be larger. Eventually huge.
My wife is the designer of the story. And, for a real-life drama, she sprained her wrist trying to dig Bishops Weed out of our garden. We were under some time pressure to get these into the ground. She was so anxious, she actually took me up on my offer to help her plant - a risky thing to do at best. So, she was the "overseer" as we planted these on June 1, 2016.
Come back and visit the "plot" as it develops.
We over-winter the Dahlias in my wine cellar. They sit quietly in the dark atop my home made wine which sits in bottles and boxes on the floor. The yeasts in the wine and the Dahlias have a pleasant winter conversation, I am sure.
