That's what it is! A Dahlia! I've been wondering when I walk past gardens and thinking "Astor??"...
Gorgeous.

Thanks everyone. They were "ordinary" flowers in an ordinary suburban garden. But something about them stopped me in my tracks.

MB: Will email you re your question but maybe not for a couple of days ..... a bit hectic at the moment!!

Hi Mary, glad you're back and the flowers are gorgeous. I was looking for your blog and happened upon another one with the same name by a teen-aged boy in New York, very interesting- not at all what one might think a teen-age boy would writes about. Maybe the two of you could exchange ideas or "breaths of air"?

beautiful images. i had never had dahlias until we moved here - what a glorious addition to the gardens! they send summer out with a brilliant bang, blooming very late in the season here. ours are still breathing vibrant color into the gardens. :)

Sky: ... yes, aren't they wonderful?
