The Dahlia is a beautiful flower that grows easily in warmer climates.
In 1824, Lord Holland sent his wife a note containing the following verse when she had a Dahlia plant cultivated in his study:
"The dahlia you brought to our isle
Your praises for ever shall speak;
Mid gardens as sweet as your smile,
And in colour as bright as your cheek."
This beautiful painting is for the PCA art Auction this weekend
