I'm not a huge Dahlia fan, but I do love the colour of the deep red one on the right, Savona!!!

The only thing I don't like about Dahlias is having to dig them up every fall.... Otherwise they are gorgeous.
Savona, Daylilies are one of my favorites too. Beautiful.

I wonder where Clara is with her gardens.... :? :?

I no longer plant dahlias in the ground, as I hated having to dig them up in the Fall. Now I plant them in large pots, and hide the pots amongst greenery. Come Fall I just bring in the whole pot and let it dry out completely. In the Spring I start watering and fertilizing, and the dahlias start to grow again! :D

Not that many, I have 12 things on my list so far for 2009 but still have 4 things from 2008 I either could not find or afford. Only 1 thing reminding on my 2007 list.

Now those are just things that have caught my eye on forums or in books. Now my must have, can't live without list is much bigger.
