Dahlias in bloom

Last weekend, we went for a walk in a small town where the dahlias were abloom in dazzling variety. Ranging from seductive scarlet to sunny yellow and every shade of pink, the dahlias are in season from mid-July to October.

Reveling in these pom-pom shaped beauties alongside the lake, this was simply the perfect lazy summer day.
























Have a great weekend!
