Linda's Dahlias trip 2014!

This is a pretty long and colorful post! In the time since my last post I got a new, to me, car!! It is a 2005 Ford Escape!! I love it!! Drives great and it only has 84K miles on it!!

 I try to take my Mommy to the local Dahlia farm every year. This is our finds for this year! Beautiful all of them!! And they all are my favorites!!!
 The colors are exquisite!!
 The textures and the shapes are so wonderful too!

 This purple one is so cool, every bloom is different.
 This is the whole plant.
I am going to have to purchase this one again. I lost it in our hard freeze. I did did them and they froze in the garage! It does not usually get that cold here. So the Dahlias in my garden are all yellow, my only survivors were yellow?? LOL, and purple, which are the new ones I purchased this year! LOL 

 The half and half ones are so fun!

 Stripes stripes stripes!

 There are so many flowers in this "smaller" Dahlia farm! LOL

 Some are so delicate.
 Another half and half.

 These are called water lily, shape.

 This one looks like it is on fire! I think, flame, is even in its name, but I cant remember it, LOL

 My Mommy in the Dahlias!
 Were were constantly amazed by the vibrate colors!
 There are single leaf flowers too. These are from his test garden.

 Love these star ones.

 This lavender is sooooo pretty!!! I have a thing for purple flowers!!

We had a great afternoon. We went to lunch before we went and then had a had squeezed lemonade!
I hope you enjoyed the colors. This is only a portion of my pictures! LOL
