a big red dahlia

No words. Just a red dahlia (Lover Boy). And a vase (a favourite of mine).



I love the way the glass and the light play together.

Isn't it funny how tastes change? In the last year or so I've come to love dahlias. This 'Lover Boy' is especially handsome. Beautiful shots as ever Diana.

By the way, I noticed last year that around this time the garlic mustard puts on some new growth at this time of year. I need to test it for bitterness in sauces.

My dad used to grow loads of Dahlia's and I hated them as they always seemed to be full of earwigs. I love them now as I am no longer scared of earwigs - but I wouldn't want one in my ear! Beautiful photograph.
