One of my favorite places to visit this time of year is Endless Summer Flower Farm.
From now until after the first frost, 250 varieties, all labeled, of dahlias are in bloom.
With all the stunning colors, it is hard to pick a favorite.
This one definitely makes the cut since its garnet and gold hues are the colors of Florida State University, and I am a loyal Seminole!
What is amazing about dahlias is not only their hundreds of colors but their different structures.
Each waxy bloom is so perfect that dahlias seem almost artificial.
I am not the only one to appreciate these beauties. Insects find their way among the petals, but not all are welcome guests.
As I wander through each individual row, I start thinking about the similarities between dahlias and people. We, too, represent variety and unique characteristics. My, one never knows what is going to spark interesting thoughts.
