In England, a physician & gardener, named Dahl, lent his name to them, he worked w/ Carl Linnaeus, today it’s Dahlias. Showy, beautifully bright colors, some think Victorian gardeners, restricted in other expressions of life, planted them in the garden as a declaration of joy.

Dahlia history has multiple stories, where they originally found in Mexico, the tubers a source of food for the Aztecs? They were once known as georginias, giving credit to the botanist, Johann Georgi, of Germany. Empress Josephine grew them, & then her maid stole them.

Dahlias bloom summer to Fall, a great cutting flower, the more you inside to enjoy, the more emerge in the garden. Petite varieties barely 12”, some grow 5’ tall

Years of Dahlia cultivars give us singles, doubles, & semi-double blooms. Victorians sent msgs in bouquets,single bloom said “good taste” perhaps to compliment receiver of their choice of companion. A yellow one “I’m glad you love me” variegated, “I think of you constantly!”

I’m loving the long dark of December days as we move toward the winter solstice, as the holiday lights begin to shine I’m remembering the delight of dahlias in the last gardening days of summer. In so many colors, blooms 2”-12”.

Grass, the lawn variety, gets bad press these days. A grass lawn, open space, made room for family play before fields & courts became de rigueur for any sport. The Grass Garden Botanic Garden, England

Grasses are ignored in our landscapes even though they feed us (cereals), quench our thirst (botanicals infuse) and house the birds, voles, & insects of the world. Feathery, wispy, they sway in the wind, we cut them down, they grow again Grass@Kew Botanic
