Flowers for You - Maryland Dahlias

 

If you follow my blogs, you know that Dolores and I like to photograph flowers.  Dahlias are among our favorites because they are seen in many sizes and colors and have the benefit of blooming for a long time in our garden.

Maryland is a great location for growing dahlias.  Some of the very best of the regional dahlias are to be seen at the Dahlia Show at Brookside Gardens, located in the Wheaton Regional Park in Montgomery County, Maryland.

Enjoy the photographs and let us know if you have a favorite.  All of the dahlias in this group were award winners.

Roy, I didn't realize they came in such a variety of petal shapes.  Tonight, I think my top two are the favorite.  The first one is bright and cheerful while their is something soothing about the purple shade. 

 

I hope that you and Delores had a nice Valentines day.

Roy, I love your flower photos.  They are a bright spot in a cold, snowy winter.  Today, I like IMG_7414.  It has all the colors of a winter fire.

Well, I just have to share that I fell upon this post once again, Roy! How crazy is that - about once a year, I find your glorious Dahlias when I'm searching for something here in the Rain!

Hope you're having a great week...and year.
