Splash...

It is pouring and has been all day.




The rain is bouncing off the deck and the garden furniture.







Fortunately, it is not quite so dull indoors.






I have been to the nursery, picking my own dahlias.






Filling the house with colour.






And having a play with my macro lens.

  3. The rain didn't get here until this evening - but it has been a grey old day. I love your dahlias! I don't know what a macro is, but it takes very lovely pictures.

  4. How did you know that I was re-starting the internal debate about getting a macro lens?? Tempting...

    (Love how you display your dahlias - beautiful!)

  6. I thought about taking more pictures today, but decided against it. Now looking at how you captured the rain, I am sorry I didn't try harder.

  8. Glorious - my favourites. Only 2 dahlias here so far. Pout. Still, at least I only planted tubers from the garden centre - though I have to say my tubers purchased from a famous TV personality flowered really well last year, even if they didn't survive the winter ...

  10. Your photos of dahlias are stunning and I often spot them in people's gardens and home in for a closer look and wonder if I should plant some at home - but then the horrors of memories of hidden earwigs always come back to haunt me and remind me why I've never got round to planting any in my own garden
