Last weekend the Sky Nursery was filled with dahlias of every color and form. To the delight of its many visitors, the Puget Sound Dahlia Association's exhibition is conceded to be the largest and best display of this popular flower in America.

Foreign visitors, like Steve Cox from the Australian Dahlia Society, make a point of stopping off in Shoreline to see floral perfection.

Steve was pleased to meet raisers of new varieties and made the valuable suggestion of offering a coupon for dahlia tubers to new members. That's how the Australians encourage membership.

It must have worked: the PSDA was able to bring a record 30 new members to its growing ranks!

The PSDA normally meets at the Northlake Lutheran Church, 6620 NE 185th Street, Kenmore on the third Thursday of the month at 7pm - except for March, July, and October they meet at the Bellevue Botanical Gardens, 12001 Main Street, Bellevue.

It was a stunning display! Who knew there were so many variations on the theme - and kudos to anyone willing to judge them - they were all interesting!
