Today’s Flowers/Dahlias

Welcome to Today’s Flowers. Today I’m posting pictures of dahlias blooming in a row on the western side of my house. I grew the single (petalled) variety last year and they attracted several pollinators. This year the dahlias are large and makes my heart “leap up when I behold…….”.  So far I’ve only seen a few bees and a butterfly on these blooms but for a change, that doesn’t really matter!

 

The yellow bud I had posted about two weeks back grew to this size. There’s a faint hint of orange in the petals.

    Wonderful flowers. Have they taken over your tomato patch or were the tomatoes on the East side? I am amazed with your bug and flower photos.

    Kanak,
    Wow on the first photo! I have not seen a butterfly yet this year. Enjoyed the dahlias, you have done well growing them. Too hot and dry for them to do anything much more than survive.

    These are beautiful! Dalhia’s make such a wonderful show in the garden and I love thier varieties. Bouquets are wonderful when they are full of dalhias.

  6. They are BEAUTIFUL!! That a wonderful surprise to see the first picture with the butterfly, wish I could take pictures like that!! The yellow is my favorite. And I see that bee, too!!

    Your dahlias are super wonderful! I know the thrill you had when you saw those dahlias. I was so also happy to see mine after I came back from my Chinese New Year break. But the bloom is definitely smaller than yours as mine is a dwarf kind. Nonetheless it is still bigger than when I first bought it 😀

    I love your dahlias…
    Great shots!!
    They continue to bloom all summer long in our garden as well.
    Some of my dahlias grow in large flower pots and containers.
    Often I use the lovely flowers in my arrangements.
    – Cheers.

    Dahlias were David’s favourite flower! We had big yellow and red ones on our back deck in the summer time. We planted some in our rock garden too (smaller ones).
    I do love the butterfly resting on the dahlia in the first photo.
    Thanks for posting this; your shots are beautiful.

    All that glorious colour Kanak!! How lovely. I am longing to see butterflies again, I miss them so much in the Winter.

    Lovely photos of beautiful flowers 🙂

    Dear Kanak, such wonderful Dahlias, I understand your joy. Your Dahlias are so flamboyantly happy looking. Everytime you step up the stairs you can happily get a glimpse of them.

  13. Yes, Kanak, your Dahlias are most uplifting. Those vibrant colours are just what we need here on a grey February afternoon in the UK!

    We may not have your rainbow splash of colour, but there are little signs of Spring – though I have yet to see my first 2011 lambs. Good to be reminded of Wordsworth – I seem to have a special affinity with rainbows! My ancestors lived very close to the poet’s Rydal home in the English Lake District.

  14. I love your new header, Kanak!
