More Dahlias -- September, 2014

On September 1 we went for a walk in Volunteer Park. The suggestion came up for us to stop by and check out the progress in the Dahlia Garden.  When we got to the garden we were just amazed at the beauty and abundance of blooms. Ut Oh! We had forgotten our trusty camera ... the Sony RX100. Well, we had the cell phone so we had to put it to use. Back home, we downloaded the pics to the computer and took a look to see about putting them here on the Island. We thought about doing some composition editing, adjusting the lighting a little bit ... but decided we liked them as is, and so here we go ... all we did was resize for easier web streaming and add the watermark. Please let us know what you think.

All of these flowers are in a garden maintained by
a group of volunteers who love dahlias.
These are all types of dahlias.

We've posted pics from this garden earlier
this year. Please check the
archive for posts.

Yes, same flower twice, but the bee moved!
Ha ha!

Thank you for stopping by John's Island.


  1. Aren't our phone cameras amazing? These are fabulous pictures, and stunning blooms. Thanks for sharing them with me. :-)

  2. That phone did an excellent job,but then it was in very capable hands. I love the Dahlias.

  3. Well done! The flowers and photos are beautiful!
