Neglected Green Babies

I have tried to explain to people that a plant acquistition is an adoption with responsibilities. I am serious about this. Plants know things and communicate in their own way with posture and color just like humans, only more subtle.

My neglected dahlias are falling over with heavy blooms.

I let Mr. Flower use their tomato cages for his garden, thinking I would get more later. The Dahlia row looks like a junk yard of fences, sticks and stakes that I have haphazardly added to the unsupported bloomers. Bless them!

My beautiful, messy life!

This mess is a visual representation of my present life. A gorgeous ghetto of growing problems, half-ass solutions and sincere love. I would prefer neat and tidy. I won’t hold my breath waiting for that.

I will go out into the garden in my pajamas and enjoy my floppy Dahlias this morning before I take off again to take care of needs elsewhere.

My apologies to my flowers and friends. Family comes first.

  1. Your Dahlias are beautiful Flo .. I grow them in the allotments for cut flowers .. And yes they soon flop and get heavy and droop or if the wind get up they can easily snap too…
    You have some wonderful blooms… And they are one of my all time favourite flowers… I cut a vase full today.. 🙂
    I didn’t have time to dead head them in the plot today and they look really messy too 🙂
