The drive to the farm is so pretty- rolling hills and lots of green.
Then you enter the drive-way of Poppin's Posies and rows of flowers are before your eyes.
Rows and rows and rows.
I couldn't wait to get out my camera and start photographing these fleeting beauties.
The center of these flowers is complex and deep with color.
This color is a favorite with brides.
And the best thing- you can buy a bucket of these flowers for $30.00!
Five dinner plate size dahlias and many smaller ones are arranged and ready to enjoy.
What a treat- it's so sad that they don't last very long.
The national dahlia show will be held in Asheville at the Grove Park Inn in September.
I can't wait to buy some dahlia tubers and try to grow them!
So if you are in WNC, visit Poppin's Posies in Mills River. They are open every day except Sundays.
