LOL Have to wait until july or august before you see the dahlias, but the red thing comes out in the spring, it did grow up to 15 ft. on its own clinging, THEN the wind came and the whole lot blew down, hence the wire. cleared up loads of leaves today, there is something stiring in the soil! yes, there will be pics of some sort later on watch this space............... x
