The Dazzling Dahlias

 On our recent trip to Holland Ridge Farms
we saw a wide variety of flowers, not just Sunflowers.
The Dahlias were gorgeous, the colors vibrant, each stem stood tall, the blooms reaching for the sun.
When I try to grow these suckers they always fall over and are covered in ants.
These were not!

There had to be thousands of Dahlias, in every color you could imagine.

They had six of these adorable spots to take pictures, 
each themed after a different flower.

- The Dahlia Diner was adorable -

It was the perfect day...
the sun was out, it was 70 degrees and the sky was a beautiful blue.
Perfect also because I spent the day with this guy,
we had a really nice time!

- dahlia flowers symbolize elegance, inner strength, creativity, change and dignity -

My mother always grew dahlias. Nothing like these beauties you featured though. Such a wonderful excursion, Debbie!

What is it about Dahlias that the ants love so much. That is the one thing I remember about them when my mom had them growing up. So many ants!
