I spent a lot of time trying to identify some more of the flowers from out recent Valley of Flowers trip…but it’s not easy. Just when I thought that I would have to let this edition of Flowers Fest go by without participating suddenly the light bulb flashed! In the entry garden at the Auli ropeway I had taken these pictures of happy Dahlias! Bingo!
Dalhias are native to Mexico where they are also the national flower. They can be tiny button-sized to giant ones (I think I’ve seen close to a foot in diameter!). They are amongst the favourite food of butterflies! For more information on Dahlias go here.
