Dahlia Time

It's possible to accomplish quite a bit of stitching on a long plane ride!
I made a very nice start on Citrouille's Designs "Spring Time".

I came home to Autumn Time.  
That means my sister's Dahlia Garden is coming into its own.

September is Show Month for Dahlias and I think she'll have lots to chose from...

There are different forms and sizes...

I'm taken with this one.

I think anyone can find a dahlia to like.

We ended the day yesterday with a colorful sunset.

Oh wow, YES, I love those dahlias! Does your sister have this as a commercial venture or is it just her private passion?
