Hi all, visited this dahlia show growers' garden, to check up on some names & varieties I want to get next season & took the following images today;

This image is of a named variety, though did not write its' name down, actually is a large flower very orange red in color;

This next image was just one of the general images in one of this growers two large gardens;

Remember this is near the end of the season for dahlias in Oz, only one more month of green foliages & some flowers. The size of these flowers is smaller than in the early season when flowers are at their best form & size.

go to the Picasa gallery to see more images;

Thanks for sharing Allen. For those of us on the other side of the pond, it's wake-up time for the tubers. Its great looking at these and envisioning the future.

Thank you for your comment mandolls, yes it is a little sad when the light & warmth starts to fade knowing the cold will soon be here (even though our winters are very mild in comparison to yours).

Our weather patterns follow the northern hemisphere, which looks like a cold winter for a change???? Hope your summer is not as extreme as your winter was otherwise growing flowers will be a thing of the past?.
regards allan

Your dahlias are beautiful, but that expanse of rolling hills beyond them takes my breath away! This is coming from an envious gardener with a tiny suburban garden.

Hi raymondo17, Thank you for the comments, yes this area is one of the popular tourist destinations in Australia.

The scenery is very green & fertile (due to the area having been the remains of an ancient volcano).

Population density in this area is predominantly large acreage properties on undulating hills.

We all choose where we want to live & this is where I decided to settle, am sure where you live has some advantages for you, even if only proximity to family & friends.

If any one is wanting to visit this area will be happy to show them the area.

I remember staying near the Grand Canyon (30 years ago), with the family of a friend, it was equally beautiful in a different way. Life is what you want to make it? allan
