BIg pink knickers…

 eat your heart out.

Those of you who on occasion have been tempted to plough through my ramblings might remember my horror of dahlias and my likening them to big pink bloomers.

Whether it is reaching the age to be walking distinctly sideways up to the contemplation of actually buying a pair, I really have no idea.  However yesterday evening I wandered lonely over to the allotment and picked a dahlia.  Last night it wasn’t fully open, this morning I was greeted by this…

  


I think I’m in love.

  1. Definitely an attention getter. I worked with a lady (eons ago) whose husband grew dahlias. She used to boast they were the size of dinner plates. I didn't believe her until she brought some into work one day. They were huge and I still can't imagine the struggle for one plant to try to hold ones head up when it is so big and heavy and yes, beautiful. Knickers indeed! Ranee (MN) USA

  3. Some Dahlias, probably like pink bloomers, are definitely better than others! Yours is very pretty - the Dahlia, not the pink bloomers!!x

    1. All my life I have strived for just this shaggy haircut, and never achieved it.
