The dahlias have been flowering continuously since mid November.

Very nice shot!

Lucky you having them flower for so long. Is that typical for Dahlias?
I'd much rather regret something I have done, than haven't done.

They usually slow down during the really hot weather, we haven't hit 40 here this summer. There are a couple in the photo that didn't start until late Jan/early Feb as it is a bit shaded in that area. But otherwise they are a great flower, good value for money.
