a lot of people say the rose is the queen of all flowers... but we think it must be the dahlia... there are so much wonderful variations and they all are so beautiful! Thanks for presenting such a (silen of course!) firework of flowers today :o)

My Mum luffs Dahlias and has tried on many occasions to grow them but sadly the slugs and snails luffs them as much as she does and they tend to win!

These are just so very very beautimous, Dory... and somehow they made me tear up; such gorgeousness in contrast to the horror. We need always this reminding that the majority of life is about beauty and Love, no matter how much one person in a million may attempt to sully it. Blessings hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

Those are some of the prettiest flowers - Mom grew a beautiful black Dahlia (which was actually a really deep deep purple but looked black) - they are stunning flowers and your mom did an awesome job photographing them

We hope the beauty you found in Mother Nature's garden bring some peace and comfort to the world. France has had to endure so much tragedy, it just isn't fair. And when so many suffer, the whole world of good people suffers too.

Those photographs are so beautiful! And you know what? One of our Mama's favourite flowers is the Dahlia. Thank you for creating beauty for the fallen in France after so much hate and ugliness.
