Dahlias and Late Summer Flowers

Dahlia and Alstromeria

I picked this bunch of flowers the other day. Struggled to find pickable flowers after this long hot and DRY summer, but there were the good old Dahlias strutting their stuff - still with plenty of flowers on. And the fantastic Alstromeria which has flowers on almost 12 months a year. So a mix of oranges and reds, a few berries, some Euphorbia and other odds and sods - voila! a bunch of flowers out of what looked like would be very slim pickings! I fiddled with the photographic settings on the top orange Dahlia flower and was surprised to see the pink come out after altering the brightness and contrast. What do you think??
