Staging for Show #3

Tonight I staged my entries for the last dahlia show of the year, to be held in Roseburg tomorrow. It is quite amazing that I have any entries to bring at all. Tuesday it rained hard and it is raining tonight once again. Since today's rain was forecast, I picked all of these blooms last night after work. I am so glad that I did.

None of these blooms jump out to me as "perfect" but that's ok. I have 11 nice entries to take tomorrow.

Amazingly, I was able to stage 2 sets of triple entries for the second week in a row. I figured with all of this wet weather, it will be hard for anyone to bring a good single bloom entry to the show, let alone a triple!

I am really just glad to have some blooms to bring, even if none of them are outstanding. It's much more fun to go judge at a show when you have a few of your own entries in the show too. Plus, I think it's important to bring blooms to support the other dahlia societies.
