  1. Lovely Dahlia. I have recently started to grow them without having the awareness that our climate is not so kind to the beauties. They have me in their hold though and I have gone to great lengths to protect them from our early frosts. Such treasures. thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

  2. The dahlia might win, or at least get the silver medal! What a fun poem to go with this photo. You have a lovely blog here — so peaceful and happy! I’ve added it to a list of positive blogs I keep on my own site. πŸ™‚

  3. Dahlias are most beautiful, I have always been reluctant to grow them as the only insect that makes me nervous is an earwig, and these flowers seem to attract them. A beautiful photo.

  4. That gorgeous lavender/purple is definitely not a common fall color…although I saw some lavender colors today in someone’s garden, limp from first frost, looking like over-sized crocusses.
    Mesmerizing patterns on these dahlias…
