We are back home with this flower photograph, a dahlia which is not quite open. I loved the patterns in it and the slightly curled unfurling petals edged with pink. Steven loves to grow dahlias and we have quite a few now. There was a risk of the first frost last night when I was preparing this post and I knew that by the morning we might well have lost them for this year, so I wanted to share this, a memory of the warmth of summer which is fast fading. I hope it cheers all who see it today!
Update: As I post this this morning, I see that the dahlias, all close to the house are safe, though the frost did come. So we have more beauty from them to enjoy for a short while at least.
