I visited my local park gardens last week and found these magnificent Dahlias still in bloom. They are such hardy plants and last well into the autumn. The bumblebees especially love them, all well as other bees, hoverflies, and butterflies. I love to take photos of the bees while on the flowers and to notice the different species. Here are a few photos of some of the many varieties of Dahlias.
