Wordless Wednesday - dahlia

Deuil Du Roi Albert dahlia, 1936

Albert, the beloved “people’s king” of Belgium, died in 1934, hence its unusual name: “Mourning for King Albert.”

  1. Oh my, this is positively exquisite! I'm so glad your dahlias did so well for you!

  2. A neighbor and good friend just named her baby girl Dahlia. It's her favorite flower.

  3. Beautiful!

    AA Milne's favourite flower was the dahlia... I'm astounded by how many there are, and how different they all are too.
