We've had an amazing summer in Seattle. One of the signs that our glorious summer is coming to an end is the dahlias at Volunteer Park. I've written about them before (here and here) but wanted to share these colorful blooms with you. I walked up to the park on North Capitol Hill yesterday specifically to see the dahlias before they are "done." The bees were still buzzing about, lapping up the last bit of nectar. These beautiful blooms pack a lot of punch, and are a feast for the eyes, and the bees!
