Berries and Dahlias

I'd hoped for more progress to share on "Sweet Berries"...but...it didn't turn out that way.  I did manage to read for a while Sunday afternoon, and stitch a bit.  But stitching and Cat Wrangling really are not a good match.  I am required to get up constantly and continually to redirect Tom-Cat's and Parvati's attention away from Quail, Chipmunks, Bunnies...

Then Sunday evening I spent time helping my sister water her Dahlia Garden.  

She has some bean, marigolds, and zinnias, but Pride of Place belongs to the Dahlias. 
Let's take a tour...

 Sean C - Collarette

Tahoma Hope - Orchid

Chilson's Pride - Informal Decorative

Creekside Volcano - Laciniated

Skipley Bonanza - Incurved Cactus

Crazy 4 Jessie - Incurved Cactus

Camano Concord - Incurved Cactus 

Lots of different colors, sizes, and shapes in the Dahlia World!

Those Dahlias are just stunning! Thanks for the eye candy. I don't think Dahlias are very common here in Atlanta because of our warm weather. What a gorgeous variety.
