At our home flowers reign supreme this time of year. My family, starting with my grandfather has been growing dahlias for three generations now. I do not claim to be the family expert, but we do enjoy some glorious arrangements.

2015 A to Z My Favorite Plants – D – Dahlia

Welcome to the fourth day of the 2015 A to Z Challenge. I will admit I have repurposed several previous posts for this particular piece of the challenge. I am currently part of a weekly Foral invitational called the Floral Friday Fotos. Each week flower lovers from around the world share their favorite blooms.

For decades my family, including my grandfather Joe Hoss, my namesake, my dad as well as his brothers, Uncle Charles and Uncle Jim have all grown Dahlias. These stalwarts of our cutting cultivar garden always help to put the wow in any bouquet. These were the best choice I could pull together to share with you today.

2015 A to Z Theme Reveal – My Favorite Plants

Welcome to my 2015 A to Z Theme Reveal for Chasing the Blooms. In 2013 I took part in my initial A to Z challenge and did not put as much thought into how I wanted to approach the challenge. in truth I did not find out about it un til days before, so there wasn’t time to do much other than my 26 posts. I missed last years turn but wanted to give 2015 a really solid try. This year I have redesigned my blogging efforts and have 4 blogs entered into the A to Z.

For this particular one my focus is on the flowers I have around my property or ones I want to add. My challenge will be finding ones that will equate with some of the odd letters. I may have to get really creative to do this.

Some of the flowers I will share will be repeats of posts I have done previously during the year. Some will also come from the Floral Friday Fotos weekly link-up, where I get the opportunity to enjoy favorite flowers from around the world. I find it interesting to see that some of my favorites are also favorites in other parts of the world.

I hope this will make for an exciting and colorful journey as we count the days in April. I appreciate your visit to my theme reveal and invite you to not only return for the 2015 A to Z challenge, but to check out my other theme reveals as well.
