I picked these flowers at random from my garden early this morning. The pompom dahlia is Baby Moon, which I planted last year but which only produced a couple of flowers. This morning it was covered with flowers - 30 or 40 on a plant about three feet tall. And I love those scruffy daisies. If you look carefully at the photograph below, you can see TimTim, our gigantic ginger tom, in the background. The dark rose is Tess of the d'Urbervilles, a David Austen rose planted on our trellis by Alfred at Easter: it's the first flower, precious moment.
