This beautiful dahlia came up with its purple fringed white petals, just begging to be shared with you all today for your Flower a Day. Dahlias represent for me one of the best times of summer, with bees and insects busy about their business in the glorious blooms these plants produce in such abundance. The flower is purely frivolous, though I understand you can eat the tuber. But why would you? Just enjoy them for their beauty and the benefit so many insects seem to derive from them. I hope this lovely one cheers you on a Monday my friends.
