Just waiting for you and your camera, Brian!

I think this is a dahlia
Brian Walbey: So others have said Chris, it's definitely not a Daffodil or Tulip, I would recognise those smile

A fine dahlia, Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elisabeth.
A beautiful shot, Brian! These flowers remind me of childhood - a neighbour used to grow them on a commercial scale smile
Brian Walbey: There is a man who lives near to us and his whole front garden area is covered in Dahlias in late summer every year.
We have dahlias in our garden, Brian, but none with this gorgeous colour.
Brian Walbey: Yes we have a few. There is a man who lives near to us and his whole front garden area is covered in Dahlias in late summer every year.

It' very pretty, Brian. I like the colours. No idea what it, though!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan. I'm told it is a species of Dahlia.
