It’s been a few years since I first discovered the National Dahlia Collection and basically each time I visit 3 things always happen; I can’t stop taking photos, I can’t stop collecting compost heap dahlias, and I can’t stop smiling...

I visited again yesterday & for a second time took my friend Emma @sewrecycled ...

I’d dampened the inside of a bin liner and put all the dahlias I'd collected from the compost heap into it before driving home, and they were almost the first thing I got sorted when we arrived back in Brighton...

It was getting dark and I was knackered by the time I’d tidied them up and sorted them into 11 vases, so I waited until today to fully appreciate them...
