My Dahlias at Skylands

There are only a few more days of summer left, but my gardens continue to produce beautiful blooms - right now, it's "dahlias for days."

I love dahlias, and grow lots of these colorful flowers at my Bedford, New York farm, and up at Skylands, my home in Maine. There are several thousand named varieties with flowers ranging from small to giant dinner plate size. They bloom from midsummer right through the first frost. Cheryl Dulong, who works at Skylands, keeps me updated by sending photographs of the property and the surrounding areas from time to time. She recently sent me these images of the gorgeous dahlias growing in my cutting garden.

Enjoy the photos.
