Let's see all the pretty dahlia pictures. I particularly like them because they are late bloomers here and it is exciting to see the new ones. They like the heat, too. Special thanks to Dahlianut for getting me interested in these very fun flowers!
Dahlias are blooming!
Very prettiful roybird! My dahlias are stuck cuz it's been rainy and cloudy.
Gorgeous!!! Mine haven't started to bud yet, but it looks like soon!
Dahlianut it is not fair that your dahlias are stuck. If I knew to whom to direct a Formal Complaint, I would do so!
I am please to have discovered that those big honkin orange ones I shared the one picture of are opening more blooms, and it turns out the hummingbirds can feed there, I did not know! ;-)
This is that one from the back, only photo so far, but you can see it is about to be covered in open blooms!
I had a beautiful yellow and white but it died. Probably from lack of rain. They just didn't come back this year. I will get some and try them in a pot.
Makes me want to get some and plant them now..
My camera doesn't do reds either ...makes the red lighter than it is but still a beautiful dahlia...

Wow, wow, wow!!! Stunning! My very first ever dahlias are making buds and almost ready to start opening, I'm so excited! However, my biggest one was beaten by the wind badly today, but I think it's okay. Good strong dahlias...
So beautiful! I love "Yvonne". I remember "Mango Sunset" from last year. It sounds like a refreshing beverage.
That is stunning! How did you get that shot? (no stem... looks like it is floating!)
I had the dahlia in a vase propped up on the wood pile in front of the blue wall. I took out the vase with the clone stamp tool in Photoshop Elements and changed the lighting a little bit by lightening the shadow. Playing around. I took several pictures of that dahlia for that purpose. This was the original photo. They are just jpegs so will lose pixels in the editing process. I will probably not be able to blow this up in to a bill board size. Dang.
No billboard mebbe, but great T shirt material!
Love the colors..... someone could paint in a teeny dragon landing on t he asteroid, just for scale.......... ;-)
Too bad it's just a jpeg. Wonder if zazzle or some other company can work with it? Mulch, what was the company you like? Could be fun.
Beautiful dahlias, all. I have a few small ones that I will try to photograph once my life settles down.
I wonder who should definitely MUST have this dahlia? http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/164754/
ps I will be visiting Pooch this summer so I can ask for a tuber for the person who should definitely MUST have this dahlia.
