We Love Dahlias!

Yes, I'm officially the worst blogger ever. It's very bad indeed to not have posted anything for so long... We have had a really busy summer doing lots of lovely weddings and just never seemed to have a spare minute! Now things are quiet as we are winding down for the end of the 2013 season.

The last of the dahlias are being picked and just couldn't resist a little post to show off their loveliness. They start flowering from mid-July and carry on until the first frosts. They come in all shapes and colours, from little pom poms (great for buttonholes) to huge luscious beauties perfect for big displays. The medium sized waterlily types are best for bouquets as they last longest.
