A La Mode Dahlias

Maybe it is the name that attracts me…personally I like ice cream and I like baked goods but I have always been partial to any baked good served with ice cream– a la mode

Dahlias do not travel well.  I only use them when they are available locally, most years they are at their best in the DC area from August through mid October.  Most of the dahlias I use are from Wollam Gardens.  I use as many as possible, especially these bi-color white and orange a la modes, while they are available.
