Dahlia "Mistery day"

Dahlia "Mistery day" (Dahlia "Mystery day")

Looking for some mistery?
I love dahlias. Unfortunately, There seems to be just not enough sun in my garden to really, really grow them perfectly. I keep trying, though....

This one looks perfect to me.
I love dahlias as well, but they don't do to well in my climate either. The earwigs here really eat them up badly as well.

Thanks for the kind comments.
(to newfienurse) Ah....the earwigs.... I didn't know they were called so in English but it hast to be the same insect! They LOVE eating buds out of dahlias and fritilarias too. I have a lot of trouble with them too! A few years ago they ate till the last bud of my dahlia "Eveline". You are talking about an insect that has kind of a pincet behing, aren't you? They are like a nightmare.....

yes holantina, that is the bug i am talking about. I hate them. They also destroy my marigolds, and can eat the inside of a big sunflower in no time. They go in cycles here, some years they are EVERYWHERE and get in clothes on the line and in houses. they are a nightmare INDEED!
