Our PSDA dahlia show at Sky Nursery this last weekend (see previous article) was a resounding success!

We had more entries than in the past two years, despite a late planting period.

The response from exhibitors was altogether remarkable. Our Challenge Flower was Irish Blackhart by Birch Bay growers Sandy and Steve Boley. There were at least 50 of this striking new dark red-white dahlia on display.

The public also came in great numbers to Sky to take in the colorful sights. The show much impressed the visiting presidents of the Swedish and the Danish dahlia societies.

The two Scandinavian presidents and Pernille (of the Danish society) came specifically to see our show and to visit as many dahlia gardens as they could in one week.
