Good morning all, first frost here and dahlias are clobbered. Sad but it seems to happen every year.
DD, cutting off old leaves leads to fresh new clean growth, and displays the flowers better. Not absolutely essential, but the old leaves eventually blacken anyway, so get them off sooner rather than later. Here I can do it over the next few weeks, so no rush yet.
Have a problem with a switch on my central heating but am just about keeping it going as I wait for my man to come.
Off to lunch with some ladies I used to work with. Friend coming too. Great that we can keep up all these old friendships.
