It has been a very cold winter this year, and seems like I have become obsessed with plants and flowers. The Pictures of these Dahlias came from Swan Island Dahlias in Canby ,Oregon. You can order the tubers from this company.
My Mother used to raise these, some as big as dinner plates. In the fall of the year they were really spectacular! Unfortunately they don't seem to do well in my area, so I have to depend on photographs. If you have ever visited a Dahlia Farm when they were in bloom, you have seen a little bit of Heaven!
This one is called Boogie Nites
These really do get as big as dinnerplates!
I hope you have enjoyed looking at these as much as I have. This old world is filled with beauty that can only come from God-sometimes we just have to look for it.
To all the farmers and growers who can bring such beauty to life,
Blessings on your GREEN THUMB!!!
