"D" is for Dahlias - Nature's Fireworks
The Poetry of Dahlias
Dahlia's are special in many ways. They are divine delights. They send out light,
like life, in a million different hues. Symetrical, they are big, brazen and brilliant.
They dazzle you with colors likely never seen. They are late-Summer bloomers, a hopeful
metaphor - that. They grow easily if given sunlight and lots of waters. But it may take
a season. They need support to climb to their peak. And they are widely used as
herbal medicines. Mexico and San Francisco have made Dahlias their official flowers.
True, they lack the fragrance of roses, but unlike roses, they do not prickle.
