Last of the Summer Blooms

I managed to snap a few shots of the few, blooming dahlias left at a local garden. It was a perfect fall day. What better way to end my last photo session with the dahlias! So here are some colorful blooms of different varieties of dahlias, the last of the season.

As well, I took some photos of the Japanese garden at Point Defiance Park, in Tacoma. The garden pond was perfectly still, creating colorful, autumn color reflections on its surface.

    Those dahlias would be impressive even here! Autumn is really picking on us here this year. We should get dahlias later than those in other regions, but they are already slowing down a bit here.

  2. You’ve captured all of these beautifully.

    Such lovely shots of the tail end of the season. Today, finally, it feels like we might get some rain in a day or two. It’s about time. Most of our flowers have pretty much dried up here. Then again, the colors of the leaves are doing their best to cheer things up. Perhaps it’ll be storms of November before long. 🙂

Thank you!
