Cee and I took some time out this morning to run over to Swan Island, one of the largest growers of dahlias in the world. They have many acres under cultivation about a mile and a half from our house, so it’s a favorite place to visit in late summer. The annual dahlia festival starts in a couple of days and we wanted to beat all the crowds. I know you’ll be seeing a lot of new photos from her over the next couple of weeks.
The test gardens were incredible, as always. Here are a couple of my favorites. These are new flowers that are not for sale yet, but I think they’ll be big sellers when they do come on the market.
It’s this spectacular? It was even better in person, I swear to you. I love the variegation.
This was charming. So delicate and subtle. I found it to be quite stunning.
But my favorite shot of the day was this little sweetheart who was enjoying watching all the fish in the koi pond. What a cutie!
