Picking a favorite flower...

Hi there!

The flower challenge asks us this month to use your favorite flower . That's a tough challenge because I have so many favorite flowers and picking just one is like asking me to pick my favorite child 😆... impossible!

I remember from childhood that my mother had dahlias in the garden. For a long time thereafter I can't remember ever seeing dahlias in bouquets or even in gardens. But lately they seems to have become hugely popular again. And I think they deserve it ! I took these photos earlier this year on a visit to a market in Cape Town.
