The first thing to greet me are always the flowers.
Around this time of year though, the pleasure is heightened because I don't have a lot of work to do in the garden anymore and I know that I won't be seeing them soon so I feel a little heartbroken at the loss and appreciate them that much more.
Now I love all my flowers.
But I especially love...
I'm crazy about Dahlias.
They are nature's equivalent of a cheerleader pom pom and they make me as happy as if they were screaming GO V GO!
Do take the time to click on the picture and see it in it's original size.
|Look at the fall sunlight in the background!|
|I lay down in the grass to take these shots.|
|The colors make me think of a Bollywood Movie!|
|This red and yellow ones are just towering over the rest everything does in that specific place in the garden.|
|Stay as long as you can hot pink dahlia.|
|All of these are annuals.|
|You too this one has a blueish purplish tint (click on the picture to see close up)|
|These two toned ones have so much personality.|
|Until next year deep red pom pom.|
Hopefully the last dahlia will come back because it's a bulb the only perennial and the only one to survive in a bag of 25!
