I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others. ~~ Sharon Brown
Here's the Dahlia in full regalia. Thanks to all comments made, and acorn/thumbs up inspirations. Thanks to "Dahlia Week" I have just identified this plant. It is Dahlia Mick's Peppermint. It now is in its rightful category and no longer a mystery un-named.

Pretty! Love the colors! Never saw a Dahlia like that one.
“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” – Leo F. Buscaglia
