    Dahlias at the Fair

    Ok, I admit to being really busy this summer. This week, it's the Wyoming County Fair, and unfortunately it's been so hot and dry, that almost nothing is blooming, or when they do, the blooms are distorted or incomplete. I've managed to eke out some gems for the flower show, and the second round is on Wednesday, so here's hoping.....

    And a few more... I apologize for the photos, the lighting was not very good, so some of the colors are a little weird.

    Thank you! I also posted more pictures in my dahlia album.. Of course now that the weather is cooler, and we've had more rain....NOW they're all starting to bloom.

    Yes, it is a challenge to pick the right month for flower shows. I know with daylilies there are almost camps of club members some for early July , some for June and what with early, mid and late bloomers -not all have a chance regardless of month chosen for the show.
    Dahlias are so lovely and varied--I can see why you specialize in them ! Lotsa work though with digging and overwintering --all that hard work gets rewardrd though with gorgeous blooms.

    I love all of the daylilly pictures and posts on the website. Unfortunately, I just don't have the room for them here. My quest to find a small piece of land to expand my garden on has been put on hold for a while (far too much to do this summer!). So for the time being I'll stick with the dahlias, and the amaryllis, and other "odds and ends" in the garden. I keep posting new pictures as some of my more reluctant plants come to bloom. Last year they seemed to do just fine with the cold wet summer---and the flood! (Go figure).
