Saying so long to the dahlias for the year. The cold spell that is here/still coming would have ended them. So the process of putting them away for the winter began early this morning.
They were first washed thoroughly, removing any access dirt.
Then wrapped and bagged. The tub was then placed in the crawl space under the house where temperatures stay cool.
Next year there will be a lot of dahlias, given that not many of them are lost. Hopefully there were many photos of them to remember from the summer.
