    Dahlia ‘Art Deco’ is gorgeous and looks very happy in your garden. And it appears that lovely buckeye butterfly is as well! We’re facing down a heatwave here. Today we’re expecting temperatures in the low 90s but over the next 2 days we may go much higher. I’m hoping temperatures don’t climb to 110F as they did one year but I’m preparing as if that could happen just in case…

      Oh, I do hope your temps settle down! That sound horrible. We’ve been in the 90s all week. I was disappointed in Dahlia ‘Art Deco’ earlier but it’s taking off now. I ordered some extra plants the didn’t live so these are from last year.
