I’ve been snooping again. In truth I rarely stop. On reflection perhaps the word “snooping” is a little harsh. The word might roll deliciously off the tongue like a cough candy twist but it also suggests activities that may well be of interest to the local constabulary. I will try again.

I have been snooping into other peoples’ gardens again.
This particular front garden announces itself from afar. Bold and defiant, it is a dahlia lovers dream. If you don’t like dahlias grown en masse, then hard luck.

Not for everyone I am sure, but personally, I love it. All Power to the Dahlia!
