Dahlias in October.  What a lovely surprise!

The day was cold and rainy but I could not resist pulling my camera from the car trunk and entering by the rustic gate into the community garden. Kale and other greens were thriving. These dahlias and zinnias were blooming. Peppers,  gourds, and tomato plants were still producing. These dahlias drew me along a muddy path and I was amazed at their vibrant colors and unique shapes. What a cheery surprise for a cold day!

What do you find beautiful on an autumn day?
