  1. Dahlias remind me of my childhood. Neighbours grew them to exhibit at flower shows. My mother was always staking hers as the flower heads were too heavy. I loved to collect the snails they encouraged. This photo is spectacular. Such gorgeous colours.

  2. Blown up it looks absolutely stunning, Jude. You macros are really great. The Dahlias are so beautiful at this time of the year.

    • Thank you Dina. I love the colours and shapes of Dahlias, but have never grown them. There is a Dahlia farm near us in Cornwall and I hope to visit it this year to take some photographs.

  3. A beautiful photo!
    I planted a couple of dahlia’s this spring after being inspired by so many wonderful photos from different bloggers. I thought they would love the warm, sunny spot I had chosen for them, but sadly, they are barely surviving without a bloom between them 😦

    • No? I love the different colours and shapes. The smaller ones are sweet and bees love them. Not so fond of the earwigs 🙂
