You could say I’m in a “dahlia daze”! At the moment four out of five of my pots of dahlias are on flower.
I wonder if their display is better than it was last year, when these very plants were coming straight from seeds back then.
The four plants together is giving a merry impact, especially in the bright sunshine.
However, I do wonder if this will mean their flowering season will be shorter this year.
Either because they have come earlier, or because the weather might do different things to them.
On the plus side, the fifth plant might come into its own when the others have faded. You never know. Though I don’t like to take anything for granted.
For now, I’m loving the colours…
…and the promise of each new bud…
…as it unfurls.
And evidently, I’m not the only one!
