WW: Dahlia Flower in Valentine's Day Bouquet

Purple Dahlia Flower Picture

"What this old world needs is more bouquets handed around to folks when they are alive and kicking. Flowers don't do a dead one much good."
- Poems And Paragraphs by Robert Elliott Gonzales

You may have noticed I was quite quiet the first week of February. Ogre and I were celebrating my birthday in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. After splurging on vacation, I wasn't expecting much for Valentine's Day. But he surprised me with a Kit Kat heart box and a beautiful bouquet of spring flowers. My favorites were the pale purple dahlias.

  3. I always wanted to plant dahlias, but the rabbits and other little creatures of the night just love to eat them.
