September sun and the secret dahlia…


I’m very proud of my home-grown sunflowers which are still flowering and look spectacular in the September sun, don’t try saying that without your teeth in. I was less pleased with the dahlia ( singular ) bulb that I had bought early in the season, at some expense. But then yesterday, there it was in all its glory. Not a mark on it. It obviously likes to bloom in private. Hope you like it too and that it cheers your Monday like it cheered my Sunday.

  1. Deep joy. My dad used to grow dahlias and won prizes ( The Grey Mare Dahlia Society). The secret is to keep the tubers in the coal shed over winter.
