Our garden tour and August Dahlia Society Meeting was hosted by
Bill and Barbara Hughes.
To say we were all impressed would be an understatement. They have a dream garden with the perfect place to grow dahlias. And do they ever grow dahlias! Most every variety and color is represented with each plant growing to it's fullest potential.

Bill is a person that seems to have more than the usual 24 hours in a day. He has his career, beautiful home and garden to tend, wonderful photography skills and a life long model train hobby that is unbelievable. He also fits in a round of golf on a regular basis.

Mark couldn't be happier surrounded by his favorite flowers.
Bill and Barbara enjoy their wonderful deck surrounded by an impressive collection of hostas. Despite rain and hail we had a lovely dinner on the deck when it cleared off. Thanks to Bill and Barbara for the delicious hotdogs and hamburgers, and to our UDS members that brought everything else to complete the wonderful dinner.
