A closer look at natural design…

Surrounding a small Community Garden in Lincoln Park, Chicago are plantings of Dahlias. This one is being enjoyed by a six legged neighbor. Copyright 2021
Dahlias remind me of onions; they have many layers. But Dahlias have many layers of beauty and fascination. My macro lens shows such complicated design. Copyright 2021 Pamela Breitberg
As a Dahlia bloom matures it seems to create a crown on it’s innermost part. Actually it’s the beginning of seed formation. Most Dahlias are propogated via their tubers because seed growth takes several seasons to produce mature flowering plants. Copyright 2021 Pamela Breitberg.
There are many varieties of these intricately created beauties. Copyright 2021 Pamela Breitberg
Each stage of growth yields new reasons for me to stop and observe. Copyright 2021 Pamela Breitberg
Color combinations by nature’s design are awesome. Copyright 2021 Pamela Breitberg
