Dahlia Eye Candy

Row after row of Dahlias on display

This past Sunday we drove to Everett to check out the 2009 American Dahlia Society National Show; this year’s show was hosted by the Snohomish County Dahlia Society.

As you may already know, I love Dahlias.

That being said, I was a little surprised how fast we walked through the hundreds of flowers on display.  I guess that’s what happens when you bring along a crafty 10 year old boy.  I still don’t know how he did it…

At least I got pictures of the blooms that caught my eye as we rushed past.

Depending how how you prefer to view photos, I gave you two different ways to view (on Flickr):

What’s Blooming this July 15

Here’s everything that’s blooming in my garden this July 15, 2009. I thought about cheating by taking pictures of flowers that were almost blooming – but I didn’t. Enjoy.

Veggie Garden Late June

June has been very good to us. Our veggie garden has made great progress this year – much better than the cold soggy garden we had this time last year.

We have a dahlia cutting garden and herbs (picture on left) and a total of three raised beds for veggies (picture on right).

Below we have pictures of our almost ripe Beafsteak tomatoes, our yellow and purple potato patch, three basil plants, our cinderella pumpkin, our corn/bush beans/volunteer tomato/volunteer sunflower patch, dill, our row of mammoth sunflowers, lettuce and peas.
