Now is the season where you can see dahlias in full blossom in all kind of colours and forms. On the one hand they are a symbol for the coming end of the year (did you know that we have only 101 days left in 2009?), on the other hand they are a symbol for the beauty of the last late summer days.

Dahlias are plants native to Mexico, Central America and Colombia. In Germany they can be found in almost every garden. My father used to plant them in the tiny garden belonging to our flat. I remember him visiting them every evening after work, watering them, and selecting the prettiest one for the vases in our living room. Ah, sweet memories!

About Ulla Hennig

I live and work in Berlin. Taking photos is one of my hobbies, and writing is one of my hobbies, too. So I decided not only to show some of my pictures here but also present some of the thought which came wth the pictures.
