What a Blast!
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
What a Blast!
What a Blast!
But now, alas, it's over. Yes, the dahlias at Mill Creek Park in Youngstown, Ohio, are all but history. Faded and brown, I expect what few remain to be torn out next time we stop. It's been fun, my beauties - see you next summer! Have a wonderful Sunday, everyone!
