Dahlias for Days!



This past Sunday I traveled to the small town of Canby, OR and visited the Swan Island Dahlia Farm. I had never been before. It is amazing! The rows and rows of gorgeous dahlias are an awesome sight. There are so many varieties! There is a big dahlia festival which starts in two weeks or so, but I wanted to go early to beat the crowds, and I am glad that I did because I practically had the fields to myself.
