One of the great things about living in the country, is the bounty of flowers, fruits and veggies that folks sell or give away (think Zucchini), right out of their front yards.
This time of year, on our way home from the grocery store, we stop at this fellow's place and pick Dahlias.
He has a perfectly tidy patch, that he plants and lovingly maintains every year.
If you have ever grown Dahlias in Oregon, you know it is no easy task.
The bulbs must be dug up each fall and stored in a cool, dry place until they can be replanted in the spring.
He has a honor system. You put your money in the Cool Whip tub and return his clippers when you're finished gathering your blooms.
For $2 you can really make some bouquets!
Too bad I live so far off the beaten path....I could have a Wyatt's flower stand!
Well, I'm off to eat hops off the vine....
It's the closest thing to a beer that I will ever get...BOL
Happy Weekend Furiends!
