Something special

I have something really special to share with you al today. I am so chuffed with this I can't tell you! Some of you may know that my Dad is semi famous in Wales, he was a Gardening programme presenter in Wales, on BBC2 a programme called Gardening together, Ivor Mace. Now how he got this job was that he once grew the heaviest onion in the world...... Now before i go any further I know your giggling, I can hear it from here, everyone I tell laughs! and here's why!!!!!!
Now he also grew the biggest leek in the world too, but that's an aside just to explain How my Dad know's a Dahlia grower called Roy Tudor. Now Roy creates his own varieties of Dahlia's and he came up with 2 new ones. One was named after a fabulous lady called Dilys Ailen, she is an amazing flower arranger and did the flowers for my wedding, her's is deep red. The ohter was a light pink, with a tinge of lilac, as my Dad says. Well Roy not having anyone to name it after asked my Dad if he could name it after my Ellie, so here she is .....
Dahlia Ellie Taylor
HOW COOL IS THAT!!!!!
