Dahlia Picking

Saturday, my sister Cheri came with me to check on Dad.  She surprised me by having my niece Halle with her.  Halle lives in New York and had surprised her parents by coming home for the weekend.  I was happy to see her again, and so was my Dad when we got to his house.
On the way home, near my house, we saw a place that was having a dahlia picking deal.  $15 for a bucket of dahlias!  We stopped at my house to get a bucket and some shears.


Lots of choices!








Such pretty flowers!



Cheri and Halle



Here's our big bucket of flowers!   We split them up and Cheri took hers home.



I got this little bouquet 



And this big bouquet!  And Cheri got 2 bouquets too.
That was a great deal, plus some unexpected fun!

I do remember commenting on this post from my phone the morning that I got it in my email. I guess for whatever reason I can't comment on yours from my phone. Anyway, the flowers are GORGEOUS!! And how special that you got to do this with your sister and niece from NY!

I do have a computer now, so hopefully I'll be able to comment more often.

What a nice idea to be able to buy and cut your own fresh flowers.
