Great Fun Attending a Dahlia Show

By Paul2032

My parents were plant lovers, and I remember attending flower shows with them when I was quite young. There were a number of active plant societies then, and many towns had garden clubs that put on a show each year. There was also the state fair and there were some county fairs with shows.

You had fun attending the show, and now we're having fun looking at all of the photos you took at the show. I'm amazed by the number of images you've added to the database in just the last few days. Thank you, Paul, for always keeping our database in mind when you go out.

Paul, aren't plant shows fun? I keep telling people it's a super easy way to earn acorns, too, if that's what they're looking to do. I went to a Daylily show and a Rose show this year and I don't grow either, but I had a lot of fun. I think it's even more fun when you enter your photo in the database and see that we don't have a photo yet! Looks like that Dahila show was really nice! Thanks for sharing it with us. Thumbs up

Thanks for the kind comments. I have a brother who collects antique bottles and insulators and he is always on the lookout. My son and son-law are hunters and spend much of the fall looking for elk and deer. I am always on the lookout for some nice plant material to photograph and then a natural extension is sharing on ATP. I did not mention the Utah Orchid Society Show. I will never grow those exotic beauties but can appreciate them at a show........
