The Summer of Dahlias


I went for a walk around Colony Farms Regional Park in Metro Vancouver last week, and these were just a few of the dahlias I spotted with my camera. I will certainly be looking for a few of these varieties next spring when it's time to buy tubers once again!

Loved this dahlia & its perfectly symmetrical petals.
