Dogs and dahlias take an early nap.
The first Dahlia of the summer @theoldmortuary decided to pop open this morning. It’s a risky life in this garden as the slugs here are super tenacious nibblers and the 22 year old cat thinks sprouting dahlias are the perfect place to do her ablutions. Thankfully both slugs and the cat choose the dull dahlias as their victims and ignore the glamorous ones. By midday this one was trying really hard to be gorgeous.
But it’s tough being the first dahlia in a summer garden and it was soon heading off for an early sleep.
Sleep in daytime was a bit of a theme. An art group committee meeting was scheduled for the afternoon. Hugo was fully ready for some Zoom action this afternoon.
But just like the dahlia he chose early sleep over the excitement of Logo design and postponed exhibitions.
