thank you flowers

Last August 20 and 21 of this year, my mother in law and my husband Michael celebrated their birthdays, just simple but again memorable. I would like to thank you all my dear Salitype friends for all your warm greetings to them. I had a chance to take photos of some beautiful flowers in Mutti's friend's garden and this is my way of thanking you guys, these flowers are for you. Thank you from our hearts...




( sorry guys, these two flowers i'm not sure if they are daisy)







**********DAHLIA*********

Dahlia is a genus of bushy, tuberous, perenneal plants native to Mexico, Central America, and Colombia. There are at least 36 species of Dahlia. Dahlia hybrids are commonly grown as garden plants. The Aztecs gathered and cultivated the dahlia for food, ceremony, as well as decorative purposes, and the long woody stem of one variety was used for small pipes.

F. Hernández visited Mexico in 1615 and noticed two spectacular varieties of dahlias, which he mentioned in his account of medicinal plants of New Spain, not published until 1651. The French botanist Nicolas-Joseph Thiery de Monenville sent to Mexico to steal the cochineal insect valued for its scarlet dye, noted the strangely beautiful flowers he had seen in his official report, published in 1787.

  1. Thee are many wondrous flowers in the Tropics and sub-tropics (such as Mexico). I was unaware of the Dahlia being from there tho it makes sense. Did you know the Poinsettia is also from there?
