Dahlias! [Part 5]

If this is your first visit to John's Island we are continuing our January feature:  The dahlias of last summer.  These flowers were all in the Volunteer Park (Seattle) Dahlia Garden maintained by the Puget Sound Dahlia Association (in an earlier post incorrectly referred to as the "Northwest" Dahlia Association -- sorry about that).

Flower names are on labels on stakes as you can see.
This one is a "Kenora Wow"
John likes the color variation in this one.

"Snowflake" with busy bees.

"Snowflake" without the bees.

A "Camby Centennial"
The lighter colors are harder to capture.  This exposure is pretty close.

One of John's favorites: "Sean C"

Thanks for stopping by John's Island.

  8. Greetings from Chicago, John! Viewing this stunning post is a most welcome sight in the middle of winter. Lovely colors certainly brighten my day. Exquisite blooms captured so beautifully. I think my favorites are the Snowflake and Sean C. The names are fun, too.
