Today's Flowers ~ Dahlia's

Went back to our local arboretum again this past week. My I have to quit going there.  

I did capture my first butterfly image of the year, which I will share later.

Today I'm sharing dahlia's. These flowers were huge. I believe they may be what is called a 
plate dahlia.

They sure are beautiful.

Lovely summer flowering plants.

There are numerous hybrids available but the largest are usually known 'Dinner Plate' varieties.

I love dahlias! We had some at another house that were huge, too, about 8 or 9 inches across!
Dahlias are wonderful summer flowers -- such deep beautiful colors. And yours are really huge! And hugely beautiful. (I for one hope you go back to the Arboretum ... you get great pictures there~)
