Solitary One

Dahlias are some of my favourite flowers but this year this is the only one that has flowered. It is a deeper red colour than the camera can photograph.

They are perfectly shaped flowers with concentric petals around the centre. I will buy more for next year. They add a final flourish to the gardens summer flowers. I love this single solitary Dahlia.
I'm back on night shifts again from tonight so I will spend some of the day in the garden tidying up and clipping the shrubs back.
