Susie, I love love love dahlias! And I love old wood. Put the two together and WOW! I think this picture would make a great card.

Also, I'll have to put that dahlia on my wish list! Awesome.

Thanks Jennifer, I try to keep the bulbs over for it but it has a tendency to not come true to form, although I usually get one that looks the same.

These are all from saved Duet bulbs. Shrug!

It is kind of fun to see what they turn out to be. Some of them are really pretty even if they aren't what they are suppose to be.
