Another Dahlia another beauty.

The Alternative to Monday Morning is NOT GOOD .....
If retired don't think about the days at all, works for me ........ If your really wild toss the wrist watch & cell phone in the Garbage Also, then your FREE FREE FREE........... No Watch, Never had a cell & don't want one.

Happy Shooting

Just can't get away from the huge dahlias that are in bloom now at Mill Creek Park -- and it won't be long till they're gone! Caught this brightly colored one yesterday with my macro lens. Happy Monday, everyone (if there is such a thing...)! ;-)
