Photo: Dahlias in the Lilly Gardens

As my last outing for the day, I decided that wandering the grounds of the Indianapolis Art Museum would be a relaxing way to welcome in the evening.

Apparently I was not alone in my thinking. The grounds of the museum and the accompanying Lilly Gardens were crawling with people. I winded my way around the museum and gardens, looking for a parking space—again in good company with other cars doing the same thing.

Next to the greenhouse was a small dahlia garden! I had finally located at least one go-to place for dahlia photos in my new environs, Indianapolis.

Not quite as big and diverse as the dahlia garden in Golden Gate Park, but close.

I’m glad I persisted.
