Golden Emblem Dahlia

I've decided to share progress pics of my huge yellow dahlia as it opens, I've never seen one this big before & to think it started as a tiny tuber I got at the supermarket a couple of years ago...

Friday 17 August

Saturday 18 August

The flower that's opening now is just over 2" wide & the bud next to it is just over 1" wide.

I'm wondering if the slender stalks will be able to hold the flowers up once they are fully open. Time will tell, won't it?

Thanks Sammy actually I've had this camera for over 2 years now, it's a HP Photosmart 8886 with 5.3 megapixles & does take wonderful closeups - I am hoping for one of those slim ones soon tho, as this thing is heavy to carry around
