To me one of the highlights of autumn is the time when the dahlia's in my garden are in bloom. It is such a delight to enter my garden and be welcomed by a riot of colour.
It's been two weeks since I was in my garden last. Enough time for the dahlia's to open and look their best. There are several surprises among them, like the bright pink one with the red heart in my fourth photo. The only one I miss is the Café au lait, but with so much beauty and colour around me, I don't mind in the least.
I was planning a quiet day in the garden, but while at work my eldest daughter joined me and one of my friends at the allotment complex. I love it when people stop by unexpectedly.
My daughter helped me to clear the outdoor kitchen, wash up all my vintage china and store it in one of the cupboards in my garden house. While my daughter worked, I took loads of photo's of my colourful bunches of happiness. Hope you like them!
Do you grow dahlia's in your garden? How are they doing?
Wishing you a happy week ahead!
