Dahlias and More Dahlias

This winter I decided I was going to splurge on dahlia tubers.  I was ready when the growers posted their tubers for sale and was determined to get some that always sell out quickly.  Well, let me say..  it was so worth it.  All the planning, all the digging, all the sweating, and all the waiting.. We are  in the first weeks of blooming and they are just so beautiful.  Come and let me show you what is happening so far..

Lily..our new Australian Shepherd puppy..14 weeks old and so loved

I could go on and on with pictures.  These flowers inspire me to learn my camera better and to use it!
I hope you have enjoyed these photographs and that they made you smile.

  Spreading beauty is a good thing.



  1. May the blooming go on for weeks to come! Your dahlias are glorious! If you get a new puppy, her name should be Dahlia! ☺️ Lily is beautiful.

  2. Your Dahlias (as well as your photography) are lovely. You could make a calendar out of these pictures and give them for Christmas gifts. Thank you for sharing all this beauty with us.

  3. Dahlia envy here!!! They are gorgeous. Love all your arrangements.
    I enjoyed your pictures.

  4. This is one of the prettiest flowers, and I don't see them enough around here. Your Dahlias are wonderful, Mona, and the ones you put in vases look just like Autumn. Lily is precious, and look at those eyes! The old books and the blue table cloth is such a charming picture. I always enjoy your photos. There's just something about them that make me smile. Happy October days, Mona.
