I fear the blooms have peaked a week too soon.  I picked an armful of white Perfumella and peach Chandos Beauty.  I’m hoping there will be some more buds by Thursday afternoon.  However, I have done a deal with a plot neighbour, who had very generously agreed to me cutting as many Karma Chocolate dahlias as are available.  Thanks Graham, you’re a star!

Here are a couple of vase variations:

This one picks up on the deep red/burgundy theme with highlights of white and green.  The Rubenza cosmos are still going strong.

This version uses the roses from this week, I fear there will be less available at the end of the week.  There is however, plenty of euphorbia

This one features the much sought after Cafe au Lait dahlia – pinker than I expected but goes very well with the zinnia, ammi and euphorbia.

I’ve been given some square florist buckets, which should make the journey from Twickenham to Dartford a bit less fraught!

Next Monday will be the results – wish me luck!
