pale yellow arrives

Our pale yellow dahlia is blooming. We've had this one for years, and this year we moved it to the back of the garden. It surprised us tonight, kind of like an old friend showing up. It usually blooms pretty late, and last year it came out in mid-September - so it's more than a month earlier than last year.

One of our new dahlias this year are these big orange and yellow beasts.
