A Reminder that Summer has Not yet Departed

Dahlia-2

Big and Bold

Big and bold Dahlia blooms whilst starting to fray around the edges are still a colourful reminder that summer isn’t over just yet.

They will grace the garden until wind, rain or indeed the first frosts deal them a fatal blow.

Till then lets continue to enjoy these final reminders of summer

  1. My dad used to grow the best. I was 10 at the time and believed him but never wanted to get close to the flowers. There could be an ear worm in them..
    Another reason for you to visit my country one day: The flower parade of Zundert (In the province of North Brabant). https://www.google.nl/search?q=bloemencorso+met+dahlias&biw=1152&bih=542&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0CAYQ_AUoAWoVChMIrfbUy-_fxwIVxVsUCh2kdABb

    Have a sneak preview: http://www.corsozundert.nl/home-EN/ Takes about 11 minutes of noisy fun. Here you can see what can be done with your Dahlias… 🙂
