I have begun to repeat myself. Most stories are prefaced with “please say if I have told you this before”. Perhaps it is an inevitable phase of life. It is not really that important unless, I suppose, you are the victim.
This is Dahlia australis, but it isn’t really. Grown from seed as such, its semi-double flower indicates that all is not well. I think that the milkman might have been a-calling.
I am depending on the fact that is that you have all forgotten that I have mentioned this before. That too is an inevitable phase of life. Which works for me.
