This year's dahlias


Last year I planted these beauties in a flower box, this year I put them in a bed. They did grow a bit taller in the bed, but still not as big as traditional dahlias. But I adore these flowers and that bright orange however high they get! Hope you have a happy Friday and a wonderful weekend. For more flowers, take a look at Floral Friday Fotos.

I'd say they're pretty gorgeous. Much prettier than my "wheaty, grassey thingys." :-) You're too much!

Have a fun weekend. Try to play a little golf. I have fun playing golf even if it kills me!

They look good to me, Halcyon. There are two dahlia beds at Elizabeth Park that are peaking now. Some of them are looking me eye to eye.

Such a divine colour Halcyon..gosh reading Jack's comment I didn't realize that they grew so tall, you learn something every day as a blogger oui!

Perhaps your dahlias belong to the shorter Miniature dahlias?
Love your beautiful picture!!

@guild-rez - they are hybrid dahlIas, so not meant to be as tall as the regular variety.

@PerthDP - dahlias get pretty tall, although I've never seen them at eye level. Maybe jack will feature some shots on his blog.

I hate the new word verification. Since I have trouble reading those "words", I am assuming others do too.
