Dahlia Centers












Dahlias have graceful, flowing petals that whisper to me 'take my picture!' Yesterday we went to Schartner Farms in South County, RI. It's one of those places where, almost as far as the eye can see, you want to take it ALL home. From perennials, to annuals, trees, herbs, hanging plants, shrubs and the list goes on. I am late with planting my garden because we were away last weekend, but I'm certain, I'll have a great harvest and I will continue to 'fill in', over the week or so. On the way out, I knew that there was a treasure waiting to be found and BINGO, these Dahlias caught my eye. Yes, a treasure for sure!!!

Oh my these are spectacular. I have been trying to get my shots while traveling on the road.

It's very difficult. But, this week end we will finally arrive in Maine. And I plan to have a blast with my camera.

Thanks for this absolutely stunning share!!:-)))
