Pic taken in my late Father's garden at the end of August, a last bit of summer colour. My mother will soon be moving house and we will no longer be able to visit this beautiful place.

Re:
Tiggywinkle's Avatar They remind me of my Mum too Aa. Lovely Autumn combination of colour with the brown leaves. Must look up the name of this variety. Strangely enough, I have never grown Dahlias, but will give them a bash next year.

Re:
Jane's Avatar That dahlia looks suspiciously like the Bishop of Llanduff to me - am I right - it has a dark red foliage - beautiful plant

Re:
Jane's Avatar Actually on reflection I think I have spelt it wrong - it is The Bishop of Llandaff
