Those Hardy Dahlias!

It’s officially fall, and I can’t believe the dahlia garden in our local park is blooming better than ever! Such hardy flowers they are! Once they are cut down, I know that it will be months before we see any flowers blooming again. My photographing attention will turn strictly to the autumn leaves and their changing colors, which have already have begun. With that being said, here are the last of the dahlia photos I took this past weekend. I don’t know how much longer the gardeners will let them stay standing. Our rainy season is now is full swing. Enjoy them while they are still here!

As an added bonus, here is a colorful seed head of a Dragon Lily that I came across nearby.

And let’s not forget the pretty Autumn Crocuses that are in full bloom as well.
