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! More images can be found at http://www.thedandelionwrangler.ca/2013/08/the-summer-of-dahlias.html
Loved this dahlia & its perfectly symmetrical petals.

And this is why I'm going to start growing dahlias again. Stunning show of petals.

Talk about a 'deep dish' dahlia! I love this feisty purple explosion.
The perfectly perfect pom pom dahlias.
Red!
A single variety dahlia.
This pink dahlia is stuffed so full of petals it almost looks like a clematis.
Loved the rosey hues.
I shall name you fireball. Right,....right?
