“Revered for its beauty, the stunning dahlia flower comes in diverse shapes, sizes and colors. The dahlia blooms for extended periods of time, surpassing most other garden flowers, and many gardening enthusiasts refer to it as the “Queen of the Autumn Garden.” The dahlia’s allure has a far reach: it is San Francisco’s official flower, an official emblem of Mexico, and is considered in Japan to be a sign of good taste.”  Michelle Fortunado, eHow Contributor

Canby, Oregon is known as the Dahlia Capital of the World.  We were lucky enough to be in town for their annual Dahlia Festival.  I have never seen so many Dahlia’s in one place, fields and fields of them!  And so many different shapes, colors, sizes . . . absolutely amazing!    It actually became a bit overwhelming . . . we spent a couple of hours there in the morning and then went back in the early evening so I could get some pictures in the “golden light”.
