Dahlia Heaven


DahliasWhat better way to begin October than with a visit to Endless Summer Flower Farm in Camden, Maine, where dahlias bloom until frost?

  1. What stunning flowers to make fall more beautiful. All of my summer flowers looked so awful by mid September that I tore them out and put in some mums. These would have been prettier!

  2. Reminds me of my dad.. he used to buy my mom bulbs every year at our Royal Easter show.. then plant.. nurture.. nourish.. water.. and then pick them for her.. and then pick up the bulbs.. keep them in a wooden cold drink box in the garage.. thanks for the memory xx these are stunners!

    • I wasn’t really familiar with dahlias until we started spending time in Maine where they quickly became my favorite flower. Such energy they have due to their vibrancy. Unfortunately, they don’t do well in my yard due to too much shade, so I am very appreciative of the dahlia farm.

  3. I love dahlias. They are gorgeous and are so easy to care for. I would love to visit Endless Summer Flower Farm (and I would happily leave much $$$$ behind too). Your photos of them are beautiful.
