127. HDYGG - Dahlias in the Trials Field, RHS Wisley

Dahlia 'Camelia'

Oh my days, my days! This is one of those posts that should come with an 'over-excitement-warning'. Have you ever had one of those perfect days, a day that's just left you feeling all regenerated and full of vim? I had one of those this week, and boy oh boy was it needed. I took the children and met with Victoria at RHS Wisley for a mooch about. A sunny Autumn day, catching up with a friend, beautiful surroundings, all simple things which bring happiness. 

 

So, as you will have come to expect from How Does Your Garden Grow? posts this is photo heavy. Dahlia heavy to be precise. But for now, make a cup of tea, grab at least two biscuits and sit back and enjoy the dahlias in the trials field at RHS Wisley on a sunny October afternoon.

 

Note: For those of you Wordpress nerds who like a blog post that tells you in minutes how long a read is, I can't help you, I am on Squarespace. But I can tell you this, this is a 4.5 biscuit post. Dunk and nibble, marvel at natures pom poms *bursts in to over dramatic pom pom shaking hand actions*
