Dahlia from Nymans

I am pleased we made it out yesterday, cos today is thunderstorms (which woke me up early) after a night of our smoke alarm beeping throughout the night that it needed new batteries…

As I said yesterday, I’ve never seen Nymans so full of people. But I was in my element when I got to the formal gardens where it was full of dahlia blooms. The only thing is I didn’t have my Macro lens on me… which is a pity.

      1. I understand how irritating they are, and they usually do this in the middle of the night. Be careful on the ladder!

      1. I know! Just shared my post because I found it interesting that my entry was a butterfly while yours was a flower, connected by the “orange”challenge :).
