I love dahlias. But I only have one plant of them, in my favorite color of very pale pink. Due to the wind and the rain of late, they have been bending over and breaking. First there was one, so I popped it into my antique pickle jar vase. Then another, and finally there are quite a few of them. I actually could have used the beautiful, Victorian era tall pitcher, but that thought never entered my mind until now. I will wrap my remaining beauties so that no more breakage will occur.
