Dahlia love

Dahlia 5

When I was out erranding yesterday I spotted some dahlia in the cut-flower section of the market. Dahlias are awesome, the way the petals look like scoops and how they unfurl and form petal pom-poms. I've never had the opportunity to photograph them before. To say I was giddy would be an understatement. ;-)

After spending a bit of time with them, I love dahlias even more.

The yellow areas of the orange/red/yellow blooms just glowed, like they were lit from within.

  1. That was my reaction when I saw them in the store too ... :D

  2. These dahlias are lovely. So many views of the same flower and yet they are all so different and each shows more than the last...
