Dahlia garden – Bredene, Belgium – part 1

“More than 250 different kinds of dahlia’s, which represent about 10.000 flowers, bloom in the recreation park: a real treat for the eye, especially in August and September!”

That’s what draw my sister and me to Bredene during our holiday in September 2013. We thought it would be very interesting and it was. Such a lovely mixture of colors and different kinds. Therefore I will make a mini-series about the Dahlia flowers.

“Orange is a power color. It is one of the healing colors. It is said to increase the craving for food. It also stimulates enthusiasm and creativity. It is the color of adventure and social communication. The color orange is optimistic and extroverted.”

I don’t know whether that’s all true. But I really like the orange color of the flowers.
