Delightful Dahlias

One of my nieces is a Biology major who is also flower-crazy!  She plants bunches of bulbs, and is especially enamored of dahlias.  (I grow them as annuals, because I don't want to deal with lifting bulbs in the fall and keeping them protected all winter!)  She fudged on the bloom time by first planting in a greenhouse and transplanting the plants.  My dahlias haven't even budded, but hers are blooming.  On a recent visit to her flowers, I snapped some photos with my phone.

They are gorgeous, Evelyn.
Like much else this season, my dinner plate dahlias became dinner for the deer! :-(
