Another rainy day, just as the weather forecast predicted. I did pop down to the Big Garden between showers. The bird feeder needed filled and I spent another 1/2 hour or so tying up more dahlias and doing a bit of random weeding. I have the first bit of color in the dahlia patch now. This bloom of "Blyton Softer Gleam" will be my first bloom of the year, sometime in the next week. This plant was one of the six cuttings that I ordered from Corralitos Gardens this Spring, so it is not a surprise that it will be the first dahlia in the garden to bloom. Looking at the rest of the garden, the Collarettes and Single bloom forms should be close behind.
