This is not one of Reggie's wordy posts, Dear Reader. This is a pretty pictures post.
About autumn flowers. Dahlias, in fact. We bought these this past weekend at the Farmers Market in the town nearby Darlington House, from the good ladies at Cedar Farm. They have the most beautiful flowers.
The dahlias really are lovely—all magenta and purple, pink, and white—and so prettily arranged by Boy in an antique amethyst glass vase.
MD always said that she thought Dahlias were common. Not quite as bad as "those horrid carnations," but not much better, either. At least in her book.
She wasn't right about everything, you know. . .
