I can admire the extraordinary beauty of the dahlia flower. But I think they are too stiff and too perfect.
Look at the beauty of this flower close up. It is magnificent. But I actually secretly prefer the lax behaviour of the comsos in my garden. And in my vegetable garden.
If any survive – and I have seven more plants left- I will have to plunge them in large plastic pots to save them from the munching of my least favourite underground pest.
They make slugs look like wimps.
