Well, that's all folks! Hope you enjoyed it!

If you ever get a chance to make a visit to Swan Island Dahlias, make sure you go! It'll be well worth the trip.

Aptos, CA

Wow, thanks for the show! Maybe some day I will fly up to see it...sure looks amazing...I have Wannabe this year, really vibrant colors,Midnight Moon sure looks pretty..oh heck, they all do!

Issaquah, WA(Zone 7a)

OOoh! So pretty. I had Rebecca Lynn and it rotted or disappeared somehow this Spring. So wonderful of you to post all of these beauties. I've got to get there!

Vancouver, WA(Zone 7a)

Yes, Pooch. You must go! Their festival started this weekend and ends next weekend. The inside show is just incredible! I wish I'd had more room on my camera card.

Mount Angel, OR(Zone 8a)

Beautiful photos, Flowerfrenzy! I can't just how imagine how much of a frenzy you must have been in to enjoy all this. I have or had several of those in your photos including Spellbreaker, Tanjoh, Riverdance, Mardy Gras, Lauren Michelle(which I just lost this spring and would love to have again), Rebecca Lynn(I have lost this twice; it is a beautiful pink), Golden Egg( still have and love it , bright golden waterlily) and more.

I love that Brandon James and Show n' Tell.

Vancouver, WA(Zone 7a)

They are are awesome, but I especially like the color of SPELLBREAKER. It was hard to capture on camera in the glaring hot sun, but it's truly mesmerizing!

I mentioned this in the other thread, but I thought I'd mention it here as well. To anyone thinking of attending Swan Island's show this year, they have a special going on. If you pre-order (while your there) for 2007 and your order is over $50, you get free shipping.
