Check out my Inflammation

Last weekend my good Pal Kathy and I went to the Swan Island Dahlia Festival here in Oregon.  We walked the fields and perused the displays.  The variety and beauty of the flowers were amazing!  And, yes, this Dahlia is actually called Inflammation.  The name was so funny, I had to post it.

Above you see the incredible symmetry and detail of this flower.  Even the honey bee finds this beauty  worthy of attention. 

There are all kinds of varied colors and shapes, as you can see from the photo above.  Of course, the reason I posted this particular Dahlia was to be able to say, "Check out my Inflammation."  Something about that statement hits my funny bone!

Have a lovely weekend. 


  1. That is a funny name for flowers and I love your sense of humour, Beth. hugs,

  2. I would not be able to resist that either. "Want to see my inflammation?"
