Last of the Summer Blooms


There is a mish mash of summer holdouts in the garden. Dahlias, cosmos, a few small sunflowers and zinnias.
They grow tall and rambly as if reaching for the last warm rays of the sun.

These are all great self sowers except for the dahlia which just keeps coming back year after year. I can already see new hollyhocks coming up from seed. Soon my iris will start to shoot up. Our mild weather causes the early start.

I don't think I've ever seen a dahlia. I never thought of that until this post. It's beautiful.
