Donnie's been weeding in the dahlia patch. He's making pretty good progress. There's about 60 plants or so. I can't wait to see them bloom. I tried planting some in the little flower bed in front of our cottage, but the snails always got to them before they could get too far. My gardening endeavors don't usually turn out very well. I once killed a mint plant...I was told it was very hard to do.
