My single dahlia

Jacinta posted a lovely single dahlia recently that reminds me very much of this one in my garden. It was an impulse buy a few years ago - a tiny bedding plant - but I loved the colour! It got planted almost at rendom where there was a space but it seems to like its location! I never take it in, I only remember to dead-head it occasionally but it is such a generous plant and its light and airy appearance lifts my spirits every time I pass it by. It is also very visible from the house since the new patio went in, so is really cheering me up on a rather dismal and rainy Sunday! - O course, there's a bit of a cheat as I took the photos yesterday when the sun was shining LOL

That looks exactly like mine, Hazel. I got the seed originally from Deborah. And I never take mine in either. I do love the singles.

I'm particularly pleased because the camera is actually able to capture the real colour!
