From the name of this bog you may gather that I love flowers, roses and dahlias are just two of my favorites. I could list endlessly the different flowers throughout the seasons that I adore. Whatever I grow from seeds or plant out there needs to be able to be used as a cut flower as I love bringing them into the house.
Unfortunately the garden has been looking slightly(!) overgrown, due to the rain that we have had and the lack of enthusiasm I have had. But today I have gone out with the intention of bring a bit of the garden in,
and was amazed to find fantastic pinks
and the wonderful colour of these
and then I found this magnificent beauty
It is picture perfect, deep red with that wonderful yolk.
Dahlias are just so wonderful as cut flowers and make me smile every time I see them, I'm amazed that most of these have come from seeds. Maybe I should ignore the garden more often!
I also managed to snip a bunch of cosmos for the table
Well enough of my ramblings, it now time to tackle the weeds that have also blossomed and are threatening to takeover!
