Welcome the Summer Dahlias!

With the global pandemic, I have not been able to get out much this year to do any traveling. I’m just staying close to home and visiting local spots that are open to the public. Our local city park (Point Defiance Park) just started letting visitor in last month. I’ve visited a few times and was quite disappointed that the city had not planted any of the seasonal, summer flowers that they usual do. I was very glad that at least the Dahlia garden was attended to by the local Dahlia Society. So here are a couple of short photo shows I put together of the many photos I took of the always show-stopping Dahlias. Enjoy!

    There are some lovely varieties here. I suppose the city would be looking to save on labour and would be less likely to plant flowers not knowing if anyone would be able to see them. For a while, local grass verges were not being cut, which was nice as wildflowers quickly started to appear.
