Even though we had a Dahlia Garden last year, I still have a hard time believing that this very strange looking and I’d say, even ugly bulb, can produce such beauty. For me, it’s truly an act of faith to spend an afternoon preparing a new Dahlia bed, as I did today, and trust that the flowers will grow. Maybe after I’ve done it a number of years, I’ll feel differently. Maybe I’ll even start to take for granted that the flowers will grow. But I’m not there yet. And don’t think I’ll actually believe it will happen until I see those flowers growing in our Dahlia Garden.
