This weekend my sister will go down to Roseburg, Oregon for the last of the dahlia shows.
She has 25 entries staged and ready to go.
This triple is my favorite - let's wish her good luck and take a look at the Dahlia Garden one more time.
Besides dahlias, she has some rows of cut flowers including cosmos...
and 'Persian Carpet' zinnias.
Now on to the dahlias.
I'm going to let the photos speak for themselves.
My sister works on and off all year on her garden. Planning, purchasing, planting, tilling, setting out, growing, tending, digging up, dividing. It is a passion for her.
A healthy garden attracts pollinators.
Love these pollen-speckled bumble bees in the zinnias.
