Here is a lovely flower that was all by itself, so I felt sorry for the poor thing and took a photo. )) This was taken at the annual Oregon Dahlia Festival in Canby, Oregon. Unfortunately, there was a lot of extensive damage done to the property by two back to back horrific storms. This is one of the few that managed to survive. Thanks very much for looking.

Pretty Orchids

This is a photo of some very nice looking purple orchids. This was taken at Al's Garden Center in Sherwood, Oregon.
I know there is a little bit of a shadow, but what the heck? Please enjoy and thank you for looking.

Dahlias are meant to stand on their own so you can appreciate their exquisiteness & beauty! They are hard to shoot for me. I had them in my garden this past summer and never got a shot I was happy with. Your shot has nice composition & color.
