Paid a quick visit to Mill Creek Park in Youngstown, Ohio, yesterday, and found several dahlias in bloom — that means more to come!! For the record, this is one of only eight official American Dahlia Society Garden Trails in the country; several of the varieties here haven’t been released to the public yet.

I’m a semi-retired newspaper editor/writer who loves photography, especially flower macros, lighthouses, old mills and covered bridges.

    We’ve had such a cold early summer, I’m anxiously awaiting my dahlias. They are a couple weeks out yet….Excellent capture!
