Dahlia's...

 .... glorious luscious pompoms of colour!! I really enjoy having them in the garden and watching them bloom... I thought I'd share some floral inspiration/eye-candy with you- colour (hot pink & orange!!) and form...


love how the colour is different on the underside of the petals:
(hahaha do you like how my nail varnish unintentionally matches the flowers!)


and even when the flowers have turned and are dying off they are still striking and interesting:
 lovely crinkled petals drying out in the sun..

  2. My first thought was that you'd rushed indoors to paint your nails to match... Love the colour of that bloom, it's fabulous.

  4. When i was very young my Dad used to grow Dahlias but the pom pom variety, i used to get all freaked out when the earwigs would appear, shuddering at the thought lol.

    Gorgeous colours Jo whatever stage they are at, fab inspiration :-) x

  6. They are astounding - the underside of the petals too - wow. And yes even in decay (have always loved roses and tulips on the turn...). Beautiful photos, thanks for sharing them.
