Dead dahlias

I know I should be cutting back the dead dahlias and digging the tubers to store over winter but I just can't bring myself to do it.  They looks so beautiful dead.

The sparrows, like me, are enjoying a lazy sunny Sunday afternoon .  If I ventured out into the garden, I'd frighten them away.  And there's a chilly wind, so the dahlias will stay there for another week.


  1. Called getting the most out of autumn...

  2. They do look lovely - hang on as long as you can!

  3. Hello Pauline,

    It is interesting how plants can be so pretty even when they are past the use by date. Hope you have a great week.


  4. I love the way some flowers look when they dry up. I leave them too.
    Take care.

  5. They are very pretty when dead. Interesting to think about.

  6. You are so considerate to the sparrows. I'm sure that they will be grateful.


I love to know who's visiting. Leave me a sign!
