Fall Dahlias

Experiencing frost last week due to a front that moved through the western mountains of Northern Virginia had night temps down to the high 20’s. Going out in the evening air to cover a few of the herb plants with plastic and burlap to keep them from freezing was imperative.

By Tuesday of this week the remnants of hurricane Patricia brought heavy rain and wind so, when there was an opening after the deluge yesterday, I could not wait to get outside to snap a few photos of the dahlias before losing them in the next freeze or severe storm.
