This morning, Tim and I ventured over to Volunteer Park. There was not a cloud in the sky, and with a predicted high temperature of 82, it was still cool but very pleasant.
Tim likes to climb the stairs at the old water tower and take in the view.
After that, we just strolled around the park. I had seen some sort of flower garden across the lawn from where we had parked the car, and suggested we go check it out.
There were many, many varieties in full bloom.
I’ve always particularly like the round ones.
There were several that I wouldn’t have guessed were dahlias.
These are all the same flower, but look completely different depending on whether they are in shade or in sun.
These are the same as well, but when I got in close to take a photo, the resulting colors are very different, almost otherworldly!
