Dahlia Season

It’s here, it’s here! Dahlia season has arrived in Oregon, which thrills me to no end! They’re like rows + rows of tiny fireworks trapped inside a flower’s body. Dahlia’s in bloom will melt even the coldest hearts. I asked Matt for a date day to Swan Island Dahlia Farm & it was as lovely as it looks.


Dahlia season is bittersweet because although they’re gorgeous, it does signify that summer is ending. Fall is so close! I think I’m ready. It’s been the most beautiful summer & I’m beyond happy that Matt stayed home this year. He’s almost healed up from his October wreck & he’ll be salmon fishing again next summer but it was special having him here with me this year. Cheers to dahlias + summertime!
