This is dahlia season, so bear with me if dahlias bore you! In fact, skip right on to your next blog because there is still a little dahlia left in this season and I am there to the first frost! Last week-end I had the pleasure of meeting Frances Palmer again and seeing her talk and slide show at the GEC during the Greenwich DAZZLING DAHLIA SHOW, AND visiting her actual garden in CT. The Garden Conservancy Open Days program had Frances on the schedule
PRETTY PINK DAHLIAS!
I shy away from pink when I am ordering new dahlia tubers. Toward Autumn when the dahlias really come into their own, I have always felt that the colors should be stronger like bronzes, gold, reds, plums and purples. But after this visit, I am going to take a serious look at some of the pinks. Look at some of these luscious blooms!
