Dahlia show at Garden Ed. Center -9/26

And now for something completely non -running related...the colors and shapes of Dahlias have always captured my attention as a painter, and in the yards of Normandy, where my mother-in-law lives, Dahlias grow in all shapes and fact my mother-in-law is a champion Dahlia-grower, and when we visit in August I try and take advantage of sketching those gorgeous flowers.
So decided to drop into the first annual Greenwich Garden Education center Dalia show to take some photos--free, colorful and fun. These photos show some of the prize-winning flowers -one that won first was called 'purple velvet, and it does look like velvet. Now time to get to work and do something with the photos...

What beautiful flowers! Do Dahlia's have a really nice smell? I am not up on my flowers, although I sure take alot of pictures of pretty ones during races.

I did not know you are an artist and do you sketch animals as well or just items that stay put?
