Exhibits from 2012

Exhibits from 2012

The Greenwich Dahlia Society is hosting “6th Annual Dazzling Dahlias” Show this week-end.  You may visit the show on Saturday from 1 – 4 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.  At 3 p.m. the flowers will be available for sale.

There is much to do to get ready for this show.  Tables must be set up, IMG_4760arrangements made to adorn the Garden Education Center of Greenwich,IMG_4763IMG_4766 the Court of Honor prepared, IMG_4767and then wait for the entries to come in. IMG_4771 Preparation begins at home, but there is much to do to fine tune each entry.  Though I grew about 40 tubers for show this year, there are only just so many IMG_4770that are worthy on any given day.
