"Sunshine On A Rainy Day"



My bargain of the week - instant colour for the princely sum of £1.20p a bunch from our local Country Market ! Nearly all my dahlias have dark coloured flowers so could not resist these yesterday along with a most sturdy scented pelargonium with an equally appealing price tag of £2.00. Gardening plans on hold today as the weather alternates between sunshine and showers but tomorrow looks more promising.

  1. It's easy to forget what a good cut flower the humble dahlia is

  2. Dahlias grow rather well here on Whidbey Island and I do love them as a cut flower.

  6. Love your dahlia - what a shape and colour. I think I need to bring back dahlias to my garden having given them a miss this year as I lost them all over winter.
