Dahlias In Bloom


Laurie and I decided to go out to the Swan Island Dahlia farm in Canby Oregon today and maybe capture a little color.
apparently this particular farm is the largest grower of Dahlias in America with over 40 acres planted. We were astonished to see how many varieties were planted. The color and visual impact really rivaled that of the tulip farms we visited months earlier.You can check out a few more shots on the website. Dahlias will look great up to the first frost of the season, so if your looking for a hearty flower for your own landscapes you can check out their websiteHere .
