The Significance of a Dahlia

Dahlia Flower on Fire

I used to think dahlias were extremely insignificant flowers until I came across this intensely beautiful variety at the Saanichton Christmas Tree Farm last August. Now as I sit in the warmth of my home on a damp, windy December evening, this extremely significant dahlia brings back memories of warmth, laughter, blue skies, and a fun drive in the country on a hot sunny, summer day… but most of all, it reminds me of the Jimmy Hendrix Fire lyrics: β€œI have only one burning desire: let me stand next to your fire.”
