It’s so busy here, with packing up for the weekend move, and entertaining the departing Swiss neighbours. So…it’s especially calming to admire these beautiful dahlias. It’s that time of year again, when we get a weekly delivery of dahlias and a dozen gladiolas, for only $10. The plant grower, who sells at these flowers at the market on weekends, has flowers that insist on blooming on weekdays, so he has a following, including us, who happily help him out. Flowers draw my attention to them, getting me out of my thoughts or pausing me in my busyness. The colours of these dahlias create a sense of warmth and calm peace both. Magic.
