Single Colour Dahlias at Belton House, Grantham Lincolnshire, 9th September 2116

Belton House looked stunning in the Spring with its light woodland and grounds festooned with naturalised bulbs that I'm sure to write up when I discover the photographs. However here is a little bit of early autumn colour from Friday. In particular I noted two varieties of dahlia with purple foliage, a nameless yellow and red, both varieties attracting a host of bees and butterflies. They were featured in the Italian Gardens by the spectacular Orangery, designed in the 19th Century by Jeffry Wyatville.
