Know when he is about by his bike, sometimes I hear him coming down the path. It's reassuring seeing his bike parked in the grass. I like knowing he's there.
John has been growing prize winning Dahlias for over 30 years. Not only does he grow prize winners, he develops his own spectacular Dahlias. This one is Jessica, named for one of his granddaughters.
John has five granddaughters and each of them has a special Dahlia named after them. I can't keep them all straight in my mind. Jessica sticks because of my niece, Jess.
This is another Dahlia developed by John ...
And this.... amazing! You might have one of John's Dahlias in your garden. His plantsmanship is THAT good!
These blossoms are huge, the photo doesn't do them justice.
This Dahlia is such a delicate colour, it reminds me of the orange sherbet ice creams we used to have when I was a child.
This flower is like a living firework! It explodes into garden.
The bees adore John's Dahlias and so do I. I am so glad John is my neighbour!
