Last of our Dahlias……

Dahlia

The last of our Dahlia’s…… usually the Dahlia  is a flower that lingers long until the first frost of autumn.  This year, despite some very heavy rains, has  also been the very opposite , very dry and record high temperatures.  Whilst this combination gave us lots of magnificent blooms they are now fading and ragged round their edges with just the odd one sparkling fresh like only a Dahlia ever can.
