This last weekend was just perfect to take another walk in the Botanic Gardens
after heavy rain on the Friday night ... every thing was fresh and pretty.
Growing up in rural South Australia I became accustomed to seeing
large blousy dahlias growing in relatives country gardens
My Mother often referred to them as being common and ostentatious
.... so consequently they were never grown in our garden.
Yes! maybe large blousy bold and ostentatious
but beautiful to photograph.
