Just driven down South to visit my mum and was able to give here all these cut dahlias. 7 vases full and still some to spare.

Lovely array of colours, like Dahlias too, think they were one of percy Throwers faves too, i have one of his books which is a bit of a flower bible for me.
Bet your mum was well chuffed.

Wow, the basket looks great. You would make a pretty penny selling them.

I'd be a buyer as there's no way my gardenings skills   :roflanim: could match your blooms  :huff:

Your comments are far too kind! I made the agreement that alot of the garden has to be for cut flowers so we can brighten up the house over the Summer on rainy days..

We've got  half a dozen dahlias growing down the sides of the path between a duck and chicken run and the big bright flowers really cheer me up as I go about my 'animal rounds'. Must do more next year!

Oh they are BREATHTAKING  :D :D   :thumbsup:
 
How lovely and HOW inspiring
 
Can't wait to finally get a little flower garden going once the house is up and they stop moving earth around.
We do the best we can with the information we have

When we know better we do better
