Aspiring Photographer: Dahlias

A few years ago, I grew Dahlias in my flower garden. They are one of my favorite types flowers, and there is a lot of variety. I didn't continue growing them, because in Colorado, you have to dig the bulbs up every year and store them for the winter.

This one is a Dahlia Hawaii. It was the focal point of the color theme of my garden. I picked up all the colors for the flowers from this flower.

This was my favorite: It was a Dahlia Fringed (semi-cactus) Star's Favourite.

A Christine Dahlia.

This was a Dahlia Fringed (semi-cactus) Yellow Star.

The next one is actually a Love & Peace Rose that I grew the same year.
