Today was my first day back at work for almost a month. It was such a tonic to see the garden looking lovely in the sunshine. The dahlias have really picked up a pace and Cosmos cupcake, grown from seed, was covered in flowers.

White dahlia with Cosmos
Here are a few of them in my vase

Other dahlias picked are these

Dahlia Cafe au Lait
Luminous red dahlia

These are all supermarket dahlias which I have multiplied over the years through cuttings. They make a colourful display on the perimeter of the vegetable garden. As they are growing on thin soil over chalk they are left in the ground over winter, under a deep mulch.

These flowers are to share with you and Cathy. Thanks Ali for letting me enjoy your flowers.

Have a good week wherever you are and thanks for reading. D.
