Yesterday, was our Fall field trip at school.
We took the kids to a couple of parks in Canby where they ate lunch, played games and went on a pumpkin hunt also.
This year we added an additional stop and went to see the Swan Island Dahlias.
Everything was in bloom and looked so beautiful.
I couldn't resist taking pictures.
Just click on the photos to get a bigger picture of the Dahlias.
This is just a small portion of the dahlias they offer.
You can order these on-line this Spring.
I loved this "Platnium Blond" Dahlia it reminded me of Peonies, one of my favorites!
The "Japanese Bishop" Dahlia was interesting.
If you touch the tip of the bud, red liquid comes out.
I wouldn't have known that but when you look at flowers with a 1st grader you find out these things. (o:
"Dad's Favorite" loved that one too!
They also had a Koi Pond!
And last, I couldn't resist collecting all the Chestnuts I could find, well not all.
Perfect for Fall!
