Throwback Thursday – Dahlia – Bishop of Llandaff


With so many varieties of Dahlia at times it is hard to find the variety of a chosen dahlia. However, I was lucky with this one, Bing told me exactly what it was and what variety it was. Good old Mr. Bing! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€ This photograph was taken about 20 months after the photography bug hit us, when we visited a place called Penshurst Place, Tonbridge in Kent.

That particular day when we visited, we went into the main house, and it must have rained whilst we were in there. Which gave this particular dahlia the added bonus on raindrops on its petals.

    1. I’m waiting for the cancel culture to demand flowers don’t have genders associated with them. I think it’s a lovely name … And easy to pronounce.๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Mind you when we went to Hampton Court Flower Show, the names of the abundance of dahlia varieties were beyond belief.
