How to cheer up January


This week I have ordered some more dahlias. I cannot resist trying some new types so I ruthlessly got rid of a few - least favourite - in October to make way. That and looking through old photos, and finding this one of Harry modelling a whopper dahlia 'Ice cube' has been a very good cheering up exercise.

I use the very reliable Rose Cottage Plants, based in Essex. Witheypitts Dahlias in Sussex are another excellent supplier.
