I'm pretty sure it's a dahlia!
A bit late tonight - been a bit busy with one thing and another!
Sorry, also, if I've only clicked, today - just ran out of time.
This image was taken at Wightwick Manor near to Wolverhampton.
Many appreciative thanks for all views, votes and comments on my 'Wightwick Manor' upload!Smile
Have a good friday,
Richard
