I haven't shot many dahlias before. They certainly come in many shapes, sizes, and colors. I made no attempt to remember their names.

a very beautiful flower with a perfect framing and very natural color. Steve tell you tell you something: to see it came to my mind an image of some dahlias, and a lady who told me as I had to take care of plants.
was when I asked my dad on whether that flash that I had come to mind had existed or not, he laughed and told me that if he had been when I was 4 years old and the lady was my grandmother. was there at the time where he was born my love of gardening ..... all for the dahlias, your photo has given me a unique moment a memory I kept in my head but did not know that there was, thank you very much a kiss large. and have a beautiful day. Alejandra =)

@AMH: That is such a great remembrance and story of it. Some impressions are so powerful, we seem never to forget them.
