Dahlia

The first dahlia started to bloom. We are early this summer. Usually dahlias start around mid August.

Not quite sure what will I have blooming later in the autumn. Seems that the long period of high temperatures has made everything to be unbelievably early.

Well at least I have plenty of watering to do.

Pink Sunray

Pink Sunrays are blooming. An annual native to Australia. Not sure if I am convinced though.

The stems are not that strong and the flowers are smaller than expected.

This was a nice experiment but do not think that I will grow them again.
