Last month I visited a Dahlia farm, a little south of Portland.

It was a brilliant, sunny day.  They said perhaps it would be the last such day we will be seeing this year.  And that may well be.

The sun was so bright that day and the colors so intense and mesmerizing… For a moment I thought this Dahlia was exploding and melting before my very eyes..
