All the Dahlias are out now on the plot and they look really great against all the green of the vegetables. There are so many that I decided to capture some for my own purposes to brighten up the windowsill at home. They’re so intricate, I never tire of looking at them and they seem to be lasting very well indoors. Next year I want to grow some gladioli. David, one of our neighbours at the plot grows them and they’re really beautiful. He gave us some to take home and they were so big that they were nearly hitting the kitchen ceiling. So that’s on next year’s ‘flowers to grow’ list.
Infact I’m so excited about next year’s plot that I’ve already sketched out a new plan – but that’s for another post. For now enjoy the Dahlias.
