OUR PRETTY DAHLIAS

Gone is the sun and here comes the rains. I'm sitting at my desk working my way through a mountain of editing
I look out of the window, with the wind howling away and immediately think of our dahlias Standing proud on their stems, then I remembered we took out the stakes for wedding photographs!! I imagine the worst, all our babies snapped in half, nothing to support them.
I brace myself.
Out in the rain and the whistling wind I potter to our patch, there they are blowing away standing strong, they've all made it!
I re-stake them. Then bring a 'few' inside to brighten my desk :)

Why grow flowers if you can't enjoy them yourself
