365 Days of Botany: Day 25

Posted in: 

Let's be honest: I have a lot of favourite plants. But one of my favouritest of favourites is the dahlia. Not only are they pretty, but they are fascinating! There is an endless variety of shapes and colours, thanks to them being a plant that is easily crossbred. And some of them are so geometric looking, it's hard to believe they are even real! Go science!

This photo is (as per the self-imposed rules of my 365 project) a new one...

Dahlias!

But I can't stop there, there are too many amazing dahlias to be adored! So here is a selection of some of my favourite dahlia photos from my archive... Enjoy!
