To say it is getting crazy would be an understatement and so I thought a short post today with a flower for you to see. I photographed it in my garden.
If you love dahlias, then you would love to do some weekend wanderings around Country Dahlias in Winchelsea. It is quite an amazing place.
It is now March and for me, that means it is the lead up to the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show. I have been going for a few years now. It is always a fantastic event and if you like photographing flowers, it is heaven.
This post was first written May 2015. It was interesting to go back to the original and see how much as changed. I have to say not a lot. I have updated it in a few places, but these are still the pieces of kit I can’t live without.

Sometimes I have trouble working out what to post, then yesterday I posted a photo of a flower on my macro Instagram page and thought perhaps it would be a good one for you as well. I liked the name of Floral Friday, so I might do it more.
