The garden survived without me! If you read Letting them fly, you will know that I suffer from separation anxiety when I have to leave my garden to go on holiday. No sooner have I returned than I am off again! Just me, without the family, for a lovely long weekend with old friends.
So I am just swooping over the garden, deadheading, eating raspberries and pulling out weeds that have inexplicably grown to the size of a toddler in two weeks.
I will be writing a proper post about all of this, but for now, as I head off to Heathrow, feeling all footloose and fancy free, I thought I would just leave you with a little Dahlia Fashion Shoot, photographed today in the sunshine.
Think of this as a glossy mag sort of a post. No brainpower needed. Just sit back and enjoy the silky textures, rich colour, and delicious flower forms.
Which is your favourite? Do you fancy a G&T? I am feeling decadent. I’m so excited!!!
I aim in this blog to enjoy all the earthy delights the garden has to offer. If you know someone who might like this post, feel free to click on the social media or email icons below.
