These dahlias are from my 2008 garden, 2 years before I began this blog. Mary has been giving me dahlia corms each spring for a few years now. Very few people ever saw these flowers in person, although I emailed photos to some of my friends. It has been so much more fun to be able to share them with everyone that reads this blog! I have literally thousands of digital photos going back to 2002 or so, of the various flowers I've grown. I also have lots of prints from the years before I switched to a digital format, though the quality of those "same day" developers really seems quite low to me by today's standards.
