These shots are from this morning.

Love them all! My Loverboy has been blooming a lot this summer but the super hot weather has it going to open centers pretty quickly. I am jealous of your cooler weather. We have now cooled down to around 90 LOL.

The McAlister's Pride is new for me. I love it when it isnt fully open, but once it cmpletely open the center is all yellow, and it looses its punch.

Here are a few more from this morning.

Sonic Boom

Pinelands Princess

Candle Light

Arabian Nights

Formby Kaitlin

Plus - these are little Dahlias from seed that I tried this year

just scrumptious! there's my arabian night. mine is a monster (almost 6 feet tall!) and is about to bloom, so i'm excited... it's a first for me. you're is gorgeous.

i'm really digging your formby kaitlin as well. thanks for sharing!

angela :)

ps... how to you keep your leaves so pretty? i'm constantly fighting powedery mildew. i know it's not suppose to hurt them, but it really takes away from their beauty (to me at least..)
