Beauty From the Dahlia Farm

Life is a journey and if you fall in love with the journey you will be in love forever.  Peter Hagerty

As we grow old, the beauty steals inward.  Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ultimately your greatest teacher is to live with an open heart.  Emmanuel (Pat Rodegast)

Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.  Frank Tyger 

You never regret being kind.  Nicole Shepherd

This Dahlia Farm is located here in Oregon and not too far from Portland. So much colorful, breathtaking beauty to enjoy!

I would love to spend some time at the Dahlia farm. Beautiful photos, Sylvia! Wasn't there a scary movie some years back called "The Black Dahlia"? Maybe I was just dreaming? :)

Gorgeous pictures of the Dahlias.. I love them and we don't have any here in our yard.. My mother grew them, so they will always be a favorite in my memories of her.

Have a great weekend.

Oh what wonderful pictures; I wonder if it will be too late to visit by the time we get back this summer.

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
