I had been desperately wanting to get my hands on some Dahlias all summer long. I just adore them and their beautiful, intricate petals and gorgeous colors.
But somehow the summer just flew by and now Autumn is about to arrive. Soooooo, I decided to wake up early this morning and head out to Leesburg, VA. It's about a 45 minute drive, but totally worth it. You see, on Saturday mornings from May to October, you can find Don's Dahlias at the Leesburg Farmer's Market! Don Dramstad and his lovely wife are the largest growers of Dahlias on the East Coast and their flowers are absolutely stunning! Here are some photos of my bounty from this morning...
Aren't they incredible! I can't stop staring at them.
