Mary- What a gorgeous gallery so full of color and life. I just love the treats my eyes get from a walk though it.
I love the soft pastel colors of this flower. Yet I find them bold enough to come out with an exquisite look. I love the mix of the orange and ick and then the center of a darker orange. The details are awesome, so clear, so sharp. Excellent composition, lighting, and the background is beautiful.
Stunning work my friend.
Have a wonderful day, you take care. #7731410

Wonderful colors on this dahlia!. I planted seeds this year, but alas, they are tiny plants going nowhere. Sigh! #7732407

Tommy, Frank, and Carol, thank you for your kind comments. Did you try some fertilizer on your young Dahlia plants? If you don't have a fertilizer like 'Miracle Grow', you can try cooled plain black coffee...really. We use it in the greenhouse, even! ~Mary #7738997

LOL..my last comment was meant in answer to Carol's tiny dahlia plants that are 'going no where'. Hope you see this, Carol! #7739943

A beautiful dahlia Mary! I had a nice potted dalhlia on my back deck that wasn't looking too good for a while; but it seems to be coming back now! #7740031
