Our old dog run was full of "junk" all the things we had not thrown away, tons of river rocks with weeds, irrigation tubing we were not using...honestly it stressed me out everytime I went into the dog run. I had a dream...after my birthday in July 2019 and seeing the Dinner Plate Dahlia's for the first time...I wanted Dahlias.
Now where will we put these huge Dahlias...the Dog Run of course! Tucker really never used the Dog Run, because as most of you know he does not think he is a DOG. This past December I put in a huge online order of Dahlia Tubers which were going to arrive in the spring. I was going with the idea that if I "Order" then the Dog Run will get "DONE".
Not knowing what to do with all the "Junk" was overwhelming, we didn't want to put it into a landfill. But we did not need or want any of the items. I decided to call Green Hauling who could come haul away the junk and recycle what they could. This was the first step towards really seeing that the Dahlia Garden could happen. Now if we only had some time to work on the garden...
Well the Dahlia tubers arrived in February 2020 and as of March 16, 2020 we suddenly had more time to stay home and work on projects. Dave and I decided to tackle the Dog Run and start clean up with the river rocks with our boys. Tucker was there every step of the way...Now we are waiting to see if we will really get dinner plate Dahlias!!!
