As it looks this season:
All the deets:
August 17th & 18th, 2013, Dahlia Society of California, County Fair Building/Golden Gate Park, 9th & Lincoln Avenues, San Francisco
But whatever you do, don’t ask about the Walk of Shame at the next meeting! It’s just too shameful:
“Program: Deborah will present her interactive Walk of Shame where you learn which are major show sins and which are minor ones.”
Now check out the flowery language used to make the dahlia San Francisco’s official flower:
“The dahlia partakes essentially of the character of our beloved city, in birth, breeding, and habit, for it was originally Mexican, carried thence to Spain, to France and England in turn, being changed in the process from a simple daisylike wild flower to a cosmopolitan beauty.”
As seen just east of our Conservatory of Flowers:
Golden Gate Park has tons of dahlia now – check out the Yelp-approved Dahlia Dell when you have the chance.
An annual eardrum buzz in GGP:
Colour hidden in the park.
See you there!
