Fall Visit to Mendocino; The Dahlia Edition
The least horrible of garden shots
Suitably Mendocino Coast signage.
The Dahlias love the cool frost free environment here, but they are literally a 1 minute stroll from the ocean and are subject to the fog, rain and wind that define this coast. I find it easy to overlook the occasional blobby rain soaked flower and the bent stems.
The garden is well tagged but in October most of the labels are obscured by the lush growth of the plants; you will have to forgive the following non-ID'd group of photos.
I keep hearing the Dahlias are The Next Big Thing . I would be on board if it weren't for leaf-miners and spider mites.
