It is prime time for those of us who love dahlias. The Demo garden is on the verge of major blooming, those who attended our summer party at Spence's, saw some spectacular dahlias... thank you Spence for a wonderful evening... and we are just a few weeks away from our annual Dahlia Show. It will be held September 13th & 14th at the Garden Center at Sugarhouse Park. Entries can be brought Friday September 11th between 6 & 8 p.m. or Saturday morning between 8 and 10 a.m..
Important show news:
We will not be using the green plastic show vases we have used for the past few years. At our get-together last week, we discussed other options and by majority vote, we decided to go back to using clear vases. This is what we did for our first few shows. Any clear glass vase is acceptable and are available at the DI and other thrift stores. Everyone who enters any blooms is responsible for providing their own vases. If you don't have any vases, let me know and this year we will have some extra at the Garden Center if you don't bring your dahlias ready-to-show.
Many thanks to Spence and Emily for hosting our August Meeting. A little rain did not hinder us from having a wonderful time and enjoying their lovely gardens and delicious food.
Spence and Emily's backyard view. Spectacular!!
