I <3 Dahlias



I'm thinking I'll plant some more of these dahlias next year. They were really easy to grow, and just one bloom makes such a statement in a small milk glass vase.

And they are just so much fun to shoot with my beloved 60mm macro lens. :)





October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the beautiful Christina at Soul Aperture is posting something pink every Thursday in the month, to honor those who have battled the disease. Please remember them in your prayers.

Yes I agree, dahlias are very good value because here in UK they go on flowering until hit by the frost - and they are such handsome flowers aren't they?
