So another Friday out delivering bouquets locally & it was such a treat to do so in the glorious sunshine.
After 6 nights of hard frosts, the Dahlia patch had taken a battering. It's early to lose their gorgeous, showy blooms but it was too cold to save them all. Some winters we've had less frost than in this past week!
Now we'll begin the big Autumn clean up - lifting the tubers, drying & safely storing them for next year. Weeding & preparing beds, ready to plant the flowers I'll be cutting next Spring.
There'll still be plenty of flowers though as I'll bring in extra flowers from growers further south in our bouquets.
And as well as local delivery, on Fridays, I'll be taking mixed bunches to In House Chocolates in Castle Douglas on Friday next week so you can pick up a bunch there too. A perfect treat for a friend - or for you!
