dahlias

As I'm sure you can tell, I really like dahlias. They are so easy to grow and show such wondrous color.  Even in this last month of autumn, they are still showing their lovely faces. I'm convinced that they will still bloom until I start seeing snow on the top of the mountain.


Of course, the blooms don't last forever, but I thin the spent blooms have their own sort of beauty.

Hello, lovely blooms. The dahlia is beautiful and one of my favorites. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

I love them too and yours are so colorful; just stunning. We will see them when we're in Oregon and it is our Fall... the one seasonal change we get to see is Summer to Fall. (And I agree they are pretty in a different way as they fade).

Fabulous colours .... and beauty even in death and transformation!

I also love dahlias, they are really awesome. All mine has sadly died during the last years wet summers, they where not dry when I picked them up to store them over the winter and they rot.

Wow, the flowers in your garden are stunning (I don't know what you say in Australia: yard or garden?).
Agree with you, when flowers dry up, they have something nostalgic, and I don't want to get rid of therm right away! Many thanks for sharing your blowers and thoughts with SEASONS - and can't wait to see what you have next week! Have a happy one -this week:)

Those last two photos are my favorite ones of them all. Though each are quite lovely in their own unique way.

I love dahlias. They are usually the last colour in the garden at the end of autumn here.
