Dahlia's

Lately I haven't had much time to participate in any of the photo themes listed on my sidebar.  Today I'll be truly multi-tasking and posting photos that will fit the following photo themes:  Mellow Yellow Monday, Macro Monday, Today's Flower and the last but certainly not least Ruby Tuesday.

While the flowers aren't predominately yellow, they are stunning and are one of my favorite flowers.  I hope you enjoy these two Dahlia's, that I took at Point Defiance Park in Tacoma, WA.

  10. Stunning flowers! Do they grow naturally there or is it a public garden of some sort?

  11. They are indeed stunning flowers. It's a good idea to combine meme's when running out of time and I am so happy you shared this with us at Today's Flowers. Thank you, they are beautiful photographs.
