dear son from Santa Fe is arriving, and even the dahlias can’t steal a moment of my time once he arrives. Until he arrives, let me show you a few pictures taken at the Greenwich Dahlia show today! There were masses of dahlias!
Imagine the effort to produce THREE perfect specimens of one variety! I found it difficult to find just one per category. Of the dozens of dahlias I grow, I had only four that I felt were worthy, but they held their heads high and did well with the Judges! Growers from all around the region came with their perfect specimens; it was a joy to view so many different types. Set against the background of a lovely art show, the colors of the dahlias played with the paintings and art work in a wonderful way!
While I get ready for quality family time, I wish you days and days of dazzling dahlias…..
