Dahlias



Busy day again today, some day I will have a job that I don't have to work every Saturday. I have decided to take tomorrow off. This is a Dahlia and an abstract of a Chive flower (Allium schoenoprasum), which incidentally did not keep Black Spot from my Roses. I don’t know the cultivar of Dahlia bit it is a pretty one with purple edges and a bit of yellow in the middle. Here is a picture of the whole flower.



I have featured Dahlias before:
Shannon Dahlia
Wildwood Marie
Mom's Special and Procyon



This is the Chive flower. It is kind of hard to mistake it for a Dahlia.

How lovely, that first picture. I wish I was tiny so I could snuggle in with it.

Salix, thanks for visiting. I will have to visit your blog and see how things are going over in Ireland.

misti,

Well thank you. You keep shooting pictures.

The whole dahlia flower is quite beautiful, DFP - I love the darker edge on the petals.

Annie,

Thank you for visiting. Nothing quite like a Dahlia, is there?

That's and outstanding Dahlia. Too bad you don't know the name of it. I tried searching the web for it. Came close but don't know if it's the same. How does it look from a distance? Some times really spectacular flowers up close are just ordinary if you look at them far away.

It is actually quite attractive from a far, also. Ki, I think I heard there are over 25,000 registered cultivars so you have your work cut out trying to find out which one.
