Volunteer Park Dahlia Garden
Managed by Puget Sound Dahlia Association
|First bloom photo, 2016.|
|One of our favorites.|
|All of our photos in this post are processed only|
to resize. We did not do any crops on these pics.
|Although the sky was partly cloudy, you can see some|
pretty sharp shadows on this one.
|Overview of the garden looking from the north side.|
|Another portion of the garden, planted later, will|
return some rewards in August or September.
|New sign on the newer part of the garden.|
|One last overview.|
The picnic table will be perfect when
most of the dahlias are in bloom.

Wondering ... What is your favorite kind of flower? Could it be the dahlia?
Marine Sightings ...
|Bulk carriers are not the most beautiful ships, but they get the job done.|
This is the Crimson Monarch.

At anchor beyond the Marina
|Barge that caught our attention with tug connected.|
We are not sure, but think it is some how related to
marine cable construction.
|We like the barge with tall crane and flag flying.|

We just happened to glance out and see the big
orange moon setting. Focus is not perfect but you get the idea.
We rushed to get the camera on the tripod. :-)
|Not much (if any) sky in this one, but we like the effect the sunlight|
has on the flag at the point above the Marina.
