National Trust gardens are nearly always a delight to see, and this is a beauty of a dahlia at Powis, glowing like the summer sun against the darker surrounds.
Beautiful shot and presentation, Richard.

One of my favourite flowers, Richard, chiefly for the sumptuous colours of its blooms against the dark foliage.
This is beautifully shot.

Nicely shot, and a good specimen too, you don't always get decent ones so it's just as well we've had decent weather.
