October flowers - DAHLIA
We have enjoyed a period of wonderful weather here where about I live, we call it Brittsommar and it is almost like your Indian summer, not as hot but still absolutely marvelous. The kitchen garden is still full of flowers - Nasturtiums, Pot Marigolds, Zinnias, Sweet Peas and Dahlias. The Dahlia on the picture is Bishop’s Children, a Dahlia I grow from seed. I planted them in April and now in October they are all “ in floribus”. I bought the seeds from US. SSE Seed Savers Exchange. The thing I really like with this Dahlia is the very dark foliage, isn’t it just fabulous
By the way the Dahlia is also edible.
