|National Botanic Garden - Dublin, Sept 2015|
On a recent tour of the National Botanic Garden outside Dublin, I was so pleased to see a large section of their Annual Bed dedicated to Dahlias. The outer beds were all daisies, the middle beds were mums and dahlias respectively . It was so nice to be able to not only see the blooms but also understand the slight differences in height, leaves, and structure of the plants.
I've captured shots of my favorite dahlias. I hope you enjoy too! Also see my other reviews of Ireland sites and adventures.
I tend to like the flowers like the one on the right below - with the rounded petals and such fullness of a powder puff.
The very subtle color variation - multi-color pops in the dahlia to the right below were unexpected.
These two below had similar coloring overall - but clearly different impacts. I really liked that pollinators were going crazy for these dahlias too! Not the bee stopping to take a drink :0
These next four are so spiky! Love the multi-color pops on the tips.
There was also a plethora of roses in this Botanic Garden - equally beautiful which I've captured on this blog post.
Have a great day;
