Valentines Orchid Show

Every Valentines day week end my fiance takes me to a local orchid show, while I love all these beautiful exotic blooms, it is the amazing scent of orchids  that  pours out of the entrance  that I remember the most.

Dahlia Show

I Happend to come across a Dahlia show this weekend, I have 3 small plants myself that have yet to bloom successfully so it was nice to see them all in full bloom. I always liked Dahlias there are so many varieties, forms and colors ( no true black dahlias though) although this one was close

 so many beautiful flowers i had trouble deciding which to post so… this is going to be a long posting of mostly flowers

Seeing all of these really encourages me to grow some more varieties. I was suprised i didn’t see any dinner-plate dahlias though
