Dahlia study

This year I was inspired by the work of local, sustainable florist, Becky Feasby, to grow dahlias. I chose ‘Chilson’s Pride’ from Stone Meadow Gardens for its naturalistic appearance and subtle colour. Below, a few photo studies I took from the last bouquet I picked before the frost ended this plant’s season. Even as they have withered, I am intrigued by their beautiful form.
