Dahlia. The first five photos here are Dahlias. These plants are pretty easy to grow, and are just starting to open the blooms. In about a week they will be in full bloom and will bloom continually all through the rest of the summer. This two-toned peach/yellow was taken yesterday.This two-toned white/purple was taken yesterday. This is the same bloom as above, the peach/yellow taken today. You can compare how much the flowers open from one day to another.
Cupid’s Dart and Penstemon. I like the contrast in color of the blue Cupid’s Dart and the burgundy of the Penstemon.
