2012, Day 242 - Burst

It is dahlia season here in the Pacific NW and they are popping up all over the place.  I haven't made my annual trip to Old House Dahlias yet but my neighbors have a nice variety blooming now.  There is almost a sense of motion, like you can see the petals opening up right before your eyes.  The colors are so clean and pure, it is a nice break from the other flowers that are wilting around them.
