O Wow! One of my very favorite flowers. I used to have a beautiful bed of them , but by the time they got big enough to bloom and me fall in love with them all over again - it would frost and that would be the end of them. Then I would dig them up and start the process over again come Spring.

I Adore the way you captured the birth of that blossom like it was time lapsed !

Your Dahlias are so beautiful! I used to have Dahlias called Oh Canada, they were red and white and always so full of blooms but last year I don't know what happened but the plant died on me and I couldn't even save the bulb. I'm going to look for another one when I go buy my Impatiens and Petunias this week. Have a lovely week my friend. xoxo

Your dahlias are beautiful! I like how you started with a picture of the bud and then progressed to the full bloom. Gorgeous!

Val - I have to tell you a story about one of my quilts from Granny. I was at a baseball game for one of my boys last night and had one of her quilts on my lap - Another Mom said "I always notice you with a different quilt on your lap when it's chilly out here".. then I told her the story of Granny's and how I got the quilt. I got a little chocked up telling the story of Granny and I didn't even know her. I always have a sense of peace when I'm under one of her quilts. Thank you for sharing her with me.
