Good morning GTers! Hope everyone had a lovely weekend! My #dahlia have been terrible this year, with a couple not even bothering to flower at all! At least my 'Duet' has had a couple of flowers though! Have a marvellous Monday everyone! 😀

@Keely - Morning Keely! It's disappointing isn't it? My new Bishop of Auckland which I was so looking forward to simply didn't appear! Oh well! 😀

Morning this one is gorgeous tho, strange isn't it- my cactus one took ages to flower but I'd put that down to it being moved earlier in year. Have a good day
