Morning Dahlias

I woke up this morning and decided to cut some dahlias at the flower farm. It was a bittersweet feeling to see the dahlias in full bloom. On the one hand, I was excited to see their fresh blossoms, but also a little sad as their blossoms are a sure sign that summer is coming to an end.

I smiled as I approached the flower fields and saw all of the different varieties of dahlias blooming so happily under the soft August sun.

I decided to limit my cuttings to the pink variety. The dahlias will be growing strong until our first frost, so there are many weeks left for me to return and clip other varieties.

Happy dahlia season to you!
