The youngest son called first thing in the morning whilst we were sitting and having our morning coffee and asked if we could take the "Little Terrorist #1" for a while. They have built a new garage at their home and wanted some "alone time" to install shelving and the work bench, as always we said yes. So we three headed out to the dahlia festival in Mema's little green Beetle.
The following pictures are on my 2010 order for delivery in the spring of 2011.

This one Mema purchased as cut flowers and when she put them in a large arrangement on the dining room table, they looked so good with the colors in the room she called the farm and had them add it onto the order for next year.
|There are over 40 acres and more then 350 different varieties of dahlias|
WOW! Those are amazing flowers!ReplyDelete
That's a LOT of Dahlias. I never saw so many. And you are getting so many pretty ones. Mema is a very lucky lady. :)ReplyDelete
I love Dahlia's, can you winter yours outdoor where you live? I really need to lift mine here to be on the safe side.ReplyDelete
I bet that is one flower that won't take Texas heat?
It's hard to choose, I would like them all:o(
We have pretty much the same weather so I dig and store all mine after the first killing frost. The big ones that I use as background plants in the main gardens I leave and they seem to do good.
