Macro Monday: 9 Dahlias

At the weekend we went to Anglesey Abbey to see the Dahlia display…it was rather wet but definitely worth it……

Weekly Photo Challenge: Vivid 2

Sheldon Shieldbug was quite fed up

As he sat on the same old green leaf

“I’m so sick and tired of everything green

It’s really beyond belief

There’s dark green and light green

And I could include lime

But I long for something brighter

From time to time!

When I wake and see green

It makes me so livid

Cos all I really want

Are colours that are vivid!

So Sheldon decided to change his life

And off he went one day

Not long later look what he found

Oh gosh calloo callay!

Now Sheldon feels happy  With his life on a dahlia With these colours around He no longer feels a failure!

Now Sheldon feels happy
With his life on a dahlia
With these colours around
He no longer feels a failure!

That’s All!

Thursday’s Special!

We planted these dahlias a little late and have been willing them to burst into flower before autumn fully descends. The rest of our dahlias are out and have been giving us pleasure for quite a while now.

But, these, I think, are worth the wait…..

Dahahahahahahlia-Oh How Much I Love to See Ya!

This very beautiful deep red dahlia is one of quite a few in my garden. This is because I became a little obsessed with them last year having found they grow well in our soil!

Just look….

We have various different sized ones and this one is the largest one which has nearly taken over our back gate entrance!

This next one is a slightly played about with close up….Can you see the small critter on the inside left? Looks a bit like the alien in Alien!
