Oh dear ! Time flies. It’s already Midsummer.
I was in Helsinki on Wednesday. It was a nice surprise to see these beautiful dahlias still in bloom. My dahlias have no flowers anymore. I will move them into the garage for the winter.
Autumn at it’s best. Warm, sunny days. About 15-18 degrees. Blue skies. Here are some photos from the last few days. The dahlia ”Fire and Ice” is still in bloom. A yellow autumn hawkbit and the rose nip. Plus two photos of our cat Jacky. He is eating grass.
The red/white dahlia has been in bloom already for some time now. The flowers are always in red and white. There may be more or less of the white color but, the red is practically always dominating. Last week I saw one almost only in white. The red/whites are about 8 cm in diameter. The white is much smaller. I think only half the size. But, sooo beautiful, at least in a close up photo.
Time flies. Almost mid September already. It has been raining quite a lot. No night frost yet but, I think I will move the flowers in pots, the dahlias and begonias, indoors for the winter any day now. Today the last bud of the Strawberry Candy day lily is in bloom. Yesterday while I was shooting the last photos of the summer of the dahlias and begonias our cat kept me company from the top of the fence post.
Also my red Dahlia is in bloom. So red. Love it. I should have bought a new, a larger pot this spring. But, I forgot to do it. Will do it next spring.
I, today, bought this green butterfly. I think it looks so nice in the Dahlia pot.
The first flower of the red/white Dahlia is flowering. There will be many more. This red/white has been with us already for thirteen years. Also the red will flower in a couple days.
