Favourites

 

P1020314

They say you shouldn’t have a favourite child…. and as a gardener, I shouldn’t have a favourite client.
But…between you n’ me, when a client thinks you’re 15 years younger than you really are, well… who am I not to have a favourite!
Add a dahlia as gorgeous as this alongside payment and you’ve got me…hook, line n’ sinker.

Well, they'd be my favorite client too! What a stunning dahlia from your stellar client (don't tell the other blooms I said that)! All the best. :-)

Most years I love to have dahlias in the garden but this year the snails and slugs have been having a field day - and all I have now is a ratty, tatty, holey mess - not fit for picking or anything else. Grrr.

Summer in a vase!

I think I should get the credit for give you back 15 years, that what I told them when they asked me how old you are! Beautiful flowers!

How pretty! I haven't had much luck with a lot of my Dhalias this year, the slugs and snails have had so many of them.

Aw, well obviously that is one nice client! And a gorgeous Dahlia! Very nice!

That dahlia is a stunner! I love those colors! I need to give the smaller dahlias a try. I always tried to grow the huge ones but they'd fall over in every storm. I automatically love anyone who thinks I'm 15 years younger than I am.
