Dahlias Everywhere!

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.

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!
