Dahlia macro

Volunteer Park in Seattle has a dahlia garden, very well maintained by the local Dahlia Society. The other day the sun was shining, and I was happy to see this.

Fall bouquet

The flower vendors at Seattle’s Pike Place Market really know how to put flowers together. You will find plant combos unlike anyplace else. And so cheap!

Late red and white dahlia

A lot has died back in the yard (goodbye lemon cucumbers) but some things are actually going pretty strong. This red and white dahlia blossom with almost cup-like petals is still doing its perky, cheerful thing in my garden.

Flowers for bouquets

Our friends with the gorgeous deck (see post just below) got married on Sunday, and I got to make some bouquets for their backyard ceremony. They have lovely flowers there but it would have been a shame to pick them, and I have so many. Our friends are also neighbors so they strolled over and chose what they wanted, brought the “vases,” and I had fun creating six matching bouquets in a rainbow of bright colors.

Dahlia with raindrop

Flowers and a bit of rain are a great photo combo. Don’t get your camera wet, but do get out there if there’s a break in the wet. Isn’t this a pretty one? Love those late season dahlias.

This week I’m joining up at My Romantic Home, Today’s Flowers, Floral Friday, Macro Monday, Weekend Flowers, Pink Saturday, Scenic Sunday, SOOC Sunday (straight out of the camera), Wordless Wednesday, Weekend Reflections, Outdoor Wednesday, Water World Wednesday and Nature’s Footsteps Waters.

Many dahlias

Haven’t been to Pike Place Market in awhile. If you want to experience the flower vendors and their incredible flowers to the nth degree, the best day is probably Friday, as they pick on Thursday and on Friday ramp up for the weekend crush of a crowd. All year long, rain or shine. The greatest free show in Seattle, and the bouquets amazingly cheap.

These dahlias were photographed in September. Right now it seems as if flower season will never get here, but of course it will.

Thursday Challenge‘s theme this week is “Many.” I’m submitting this for an entry. It’s a good one for Color Carnival, Today’s Flowers and SOOC also. While you’re here, try a new tag like “dahlia” or “bouquet.” Be sure to click on Sara’s Fave Photos to view the complete blog if you see only one photo below.

Dahlia bouquet

Oh, the flowers of late summer! I’ve noticed that the items in my archive that are half a year away always seem to be the most compelling. Do we always want what we don’t have? I do love dahlias and especially miss them since my own were such no-shows last summer. Maybe this year I’ll get some going so I can have bouquets like this again.

Visit Ruby Tuesday for more interesting photos containing red. Color Carnival has brilliant color, Mellow Yellow Monday has yellows, and SOOC has more straight out of the camera stuff. And don’t forget to check out the latest uploads on Free Photos next door. Remember, if only one photo here, click on Sara’s Fave Photos for the complete blog.

'Elizabeth' dahlia

Last week at the Pike Place Market there were about a zillion kinds of dahlias, along with truckloads of armfuls of sunflowers and even some late oriental lilies perfuming up the place, all grown locally by the vendors. What a show. I now have a new favorite dahlia, called ‘Elizabeth’. To me it’s just the prettiest thing. I think those are white asters along with the dahlias.

Visit Pink Saturday and Macro Flowers Saturday for more exciting photography in blogland.

Dahlia macro

This was on a roadside dahlia flower stand, pretty simple operation, gorgeous blooms. I love the way a sort of gray day was transformed into an explosion of light.

Macro Monday, Color Carnival, SOOC (straight out of the camera) and Mellow Yellow Monday are very worthwhile sites to visit. And they’re good categories to check out, too, here at Sara’s Fave Photos blog.
