Dahlia Chat Noir
I’ve always had a passion for dahlias even at their most unfashionable. They remind me of the hats that heavily powdered aged aunts wore when I was a child.
So I feel properly heartened to see that they’re once more in vogue, bringing welcome colour to so many of our plots and as @Saralimback pointed out last week on Twitter they make fabulous cut flowers.
