Field Trip: Old House Dahlias
Old House Dahlias dahlia fest was a perfect way to say goodbye to Summer. We drove to Southeast Portland, and found our way into the garden by hand painted signs, a green tractor, and small red barn. Wandering through rows of over 200 varieties to discover blooms I've never seen before was blissful. I loved the dark foliage of new-to-me Japanese Bishop and one of my old favorites, Sherwood's Peach.
I'm already looking forward to next year's Fest and highly recommend purchasing tubers from Old House Dahlias. They're also open for cut flowers for weddings and events until the first frost.
