The dahlias at Pt Defiance Park are at their peak now. Every variety, even some new ones I don’t remember ever seeing before, is now in bloom. I’ll have to admit, though, that some of the older varieties remain my favorites. How can you not love a flower that looks as beautiful from the back
as it does from the front?
How can you not love a variety that can produce blossoms as varied as this
from a single plant?
Apparently some people are never satisfied, though, because they keep producing new varieties like this one,
which I did find quite appealing, or this one,
which I find less appealing.
