so I invaded Iggy's territory today. I am 'hosting' a continuing education workshop for my staff. Today I snuck over to the Public Gardens early to wonder a bit and get some down time. The dahlias are in full bloom and looking stunning.

I am amazed by the variety of shapes, sizes and colours:

Me too. And the variety of petals. Some have so many and others have so few.

Nice set Bambi. Wish I had known you were around we could have hooked up!

Here's a couple of mine from that particular spot I got this morning around 8am.

you must have left just before I got there. I didn't contact you because I wasn't sure I would be able to get away. I'll probably be there again tomorrow morning.....

Both lovely shots B and Ig. Whenever I go back home, I always bring back several bunches of dahlias from the coast to have in my home. My Mum is a huge fan of them and while I can't cut hers or she'd cut me :laughing:I always stop at a roadside stand and buy some as they are all over the place in Victoria.

thanks all.
Iggy and I met up today and took some more shots. These are still from yesterday. I loved how these petals looked painted:

It's been a long day, I'll add more of mine tomorrow if I got anything worth showing.

I'm sure none of you are sitting on the edge of your seat but I did promise to post some of my dahlia shots from Thursday. Sorry it took so long.
