The Dahlia Parasols


I took this photo last year in a small park near my sis's where I was enchanted by these huge dahlias(dinnerplate?). The gardener had 'planted' parasols strategically in order to shade the flowers and preserve their colors and blooms. Look how the parasol's color is reflected on the petals!

  1. Beautiful! I just saw one of this variety this morning- it was a lovely, creamy, butter yellow. Sounds like a nice painting for you...

  2. I love the red parasols how they shield the Dahlia's from the warm sun. xoxo

  3. I am going to cry, can it already be one year ago, that you my dear sweet sister were here snapping those sweet Dahlias! I drive by them, and I think of you -
    The parasols are up! Come again, real soon!
