Each year I take a photo of the different varieties to keep a record of which dahlias have survived the chooks and general lack of water and TLC.
What is your favourite dahlia?
I like the pink ones but my favourite one is the red and white dahlia below which is actually a darker red than appears in the photo and it absolutely stunning.
It is easy to take these flowers for granted and it is not until someone says how beautiful they are looking that I take notice of them as all I have been seeing in the garden lately are the weeds that need to be pulled out after all the rain and the long grass that the guinea pigs can't keep up with.
My Northern Hemisphere readers may not know that we have a four day holiday over Easter here in Australia...that is if you don't work in a supermarket or some retail stores and many families travel to the coast or go camping at this time. After the heat of summer it is a beautiful time of the year usually. I hope everyone had a very happy and blessed Easter and I pray that all those who will be travelling tomorrow will stay safe on the roads.
