Even if the calendar doesn't say so, it must be Fall already. School has started (for those who still care) and at Shore Acres State Park the dahlia gardens by far outshone the last roses of the summer.
We used to grow a few dahlias, but nothing like the wide variety in these gardens.
We don't see these Fall flowers in Florida, so I'm always glad that we're still in the Pacific Northwest at this time of the year.
(unless it's Happy Spring where you live)
