"The Awakening (2015)" was taken in an unheated greenhouse with natural lighting (I think). Daffodils are drying on the right; Mum cuttings are tucked out of sight for the moment.
Dahlia, oh dahlia! When will you bloom?
I've waited and waited and now it's June!
I planted you in early May;
you pushed from the soil in only a day.
A tuber of origin, you are unknown.
On a table priced "two bits", most had gone home.
I wonder what color your petals will be.
White? Purple? Red? Yellow? I can't wait to see!
And what of the form will you show me some day?
Formal Dec, Collarette, Incurved Cactus, I pray.
Hurry, oh dahlia, my patience grows old!
So Falls round the corner this year I was told.
