All weekend this smiley single Dahlia kept turning her face to me. I think this is a Keith Hammet dahlia ‘Mystic Haze’.
The first copper blossoms are opening on the chrysanthemums I grew from cuttings from cut flowers last year. The little green ones are still in bud.
They have the most vibrant green centres!
To go with these copper colours I pinched some Salvia ‘Black Knight’, ‘Indigo Spires’, and confertiflora, the colour of which I once saw described as ‘mercurochrome’.
All of these and my unknown white cactus dahlia, one Dahlia ‘Eveline’, and Artemesia ‘Powis Castle’ went together in an old copper tea pot.
Over at Rambling in the Garden there are Tulips and Spring flowers to light up this Monday, for me the first one after Daylight Savings ends, a sure sign that Autumn is here.
