Dahlia - Pink Pat and Perc

I was unable to go for my usual walk today so it was a look for something interesting in the garden. This dahlia with the strange name is looking at its best just now so is my choice.
There is a condition known as dahlia addiction and I am infected by it, albeit in a small way. Those who grow hundreds of varieties are looked on kindly and are known as dahlia nutters .They look after their dahlias as if they are delicate children.
I have been there and done that but now I have it under control and only grow about 50 these days.
Beautiful, Ian! Such amazing colours! (dahlia nutters- not such a bad addiction :)

i belong to a facebook group for the dahlia addicted, in NZ it is winter so everyone is ordering tubers, i manage to show restraint but am still affected!

I have never seen a dahlia like this one--so unusual and love the colors. Will try to find it in the U.S. Very sharp detail with a subtle bokeh. Fav

I have seldom seen such a beautiful dahlia and wonderful shot. My father used to be a dahlia nutter and sent his creations and tubers all over the country. I grew up with a huge garden full of them, there were so many flowers that we started to sell them.
