I love Dahlias, they are definately my favourite flower. Mine have not done too well this year (Bugsy the bunny likes the tubers......) but this one is about to burst in to flower.

A couple of years ago I took these, one picture a day:






which means next week I will hopefully have a dahlia almost in full bloom!

  10. These are wonderful shots of a beautiful flower. Darn bunnies! They are cute but also can be very destructive. Very nice photos.
