Dahlia\ This summer my Dad was walking around our yard and asked what kind of flower this was going to be and I told him a Dahlia. He said that his Dad, my Grandpa, used to plant these every year in their yard on Albany Ave. in Chicago over 70 years ago. I did not know this about my Grandpa when I bought the bulbs. I thought the flower on the bulb package was so pretty. Thanks for sharing this story with me Dad. I plan to plant many more Dahlias in my yard in honor of Grandpa Fliegel.
