Dahlias seem to dominate many stands of the Flower Markets in Seattle during our City's Sunny Summer Days.
Their vibrant colors are so welcome - after such a cool Spring this year-!
Declared the City's Official flower nearly a Century ago - as the Dahlias thrive in our Northwest moist moderate climate.

Lucky for me - I just recieved the nicest Gift of a huge armful of Dahlias from my neighbor who does so well growing them-!
I've always enjoyed Painting and Arranging Dahlias because they grow in nearly every Hue and Array of shapes and forms - from spiky to wispy - svelte to spherical.
I've found the Arrangements are long-lasting - so Perfect for special occaisions.
The large - lighter colors can look especially striking and classical.
Also they will Bloom through October - if the Summer weather is not to Hot-!
