Purple flower power

I saw this Dahlia getting ready to bloom and I was excited to get to photograph it.

Its color was like a watercolor that was gently fading to the edge of each petal. The edges were crisp and the details were amazing.

Photographing this Dahlia proved to be a challenge since the flower was leaning towards the ground. I tried every angle I could to get to show off this flower.

When you plant things that bloom in your yard then you will always be surrounded by flowers. You just never know what might be blooming that day.

Every time I see something blooming in our yard it puts a smile on my face.

  1. I kind of like that second shot best…where it’s facing down. I guess because that’s an unexpected angle. Nice job! Our dahlias aren’t even up out of the ground yet. They’re almost too slow for up here in Michigan. By the time they get around to blooming here we’re at risk of a hard frost. Still. I plant them every year.
