      Thanks Beth! I think the extreme heat and drought may have the zinnias experimenting with survival. Thought this one was interesting.

    Beautiful shots, Beth! The ‘Cafe au Lait’ Dahlia’s coloration is interesting – I’ve seen ivory specimens and pink specimens but yours is a great mix of both. I love the butterfly, dragonfly and hummingbird moth pics.

      Thanks Kris. I really like that coffee cream color characteristic of ‘Cafe au Lait’ and am not so fond of the streaky version, but the dahlia is doing much better this year in terms of yield.
