Wunx & The Dahlias
How would you like to be Wunx? This poor, little Master Gardener labors day in and day out on her gardens...
But she lives across the street from Dahlia Dave. He's not a Master Gardener. So, clearly he doesn't know a damn thing about gardening.
And, yet.... he is totally kicking her ass! :-)
Dahlias are something we dare not touch. They are incredibly beautiful. But, like most beauty queens they are far too high maintenance for anyone who still has to work for a living.
Dying to grow Dahlias? Start with amended soil, consistent doses of fertilizer, daily trimming, coaxing and TLC. Oh, and by the way... After all that work, you still gotta dig 'em up before it freezes and coddle their little butts all winter long.
Leave it to the Witless Wanderer to discover a quick, clever way to enjoy their magnificent beauty without the toil and trouble. She talks her neighbor into growing them!
He's big into Mums, too:
