Orange & Yellow Dahlia-CSU Gardens

Hi Everyone,

I thought that I would add a new gallery today of some of my landscape photos that I took in the New England States but am not sure if that is how I want to go.  I still want to give it more thought.  

This dahlia photo was taken at Colorado State University in Fort Collins.  In the summer, they have beautiful flower gardens with many different types of flowers.  Many people walk among the flower beds to view them.  It is a wonderful place for me to go because living in Estes Park, Colorado does not give me an opportunity to grow many different kinds of flowers because of our harsh climate.  The sun is very intense here and it is also dry.  I live at 8,000 ft. above sea level and flowers die very quickly because of the sun and dryness.  

So on this day, I went to their dahlia beds and shot many types of dahlias and this is one of them.  I love the orange and yellow colors of this particular flower. What do you think of the colors?  

I want to wish all my website visitors a very happy Holiday season and I wish you all a wonderful New Year filled with love, friendship and good health.  Also, safe travels as you visit with family and friends near and far...Diane.

The Dahlia was declared the national flower of Mexico in 1963. The tubers were grown as a food crop by the Aztecs.
