In this part of the world, both pumpkins and dahlias can be iconic symbols of autumn.

I threatened promised to post photos from the Lane County Dahlia show and so here they are.  As with any kind of plant, it is always remarkable to see them en mass - the depth and breath of color and form...

Mignon Singles

Vesuvius - A truly explosive floral arrangement!

Alfred Grille - Incurved Cactus

Dahlias - Balls


Dahlias - Orchids
This form of dahlia looks like whacked out starfish to me!

I wonder if this is the same dahlia show as 4 hills of squash posted about. Anyway beautiful pictures. Thanks for sharing.

I really missed growing Dahlia's this year- I always leave them in the ground and that cold snap we had last winter finished them off. My own fault. Now these pictures remind me why I need to plant some more.

In spring,though. :-)
