Dahlia

Did you know Dhalias are one of the favorite flowers of Chefs? These gorgeous flowers are used to enhance the aesthetics of the food displayed. Veggie platters, party punch bowls, appetizer trays, salads look most tempting with the addition of these flowers.

A couple of Dahlia shots from the recent Lal Bagh flower show in Bangalore. I have presented them in two different perspectives. Hope you will enjoy them.
