Since I’ve lived in Oregon, there are a few annual activities I never miss. One of them is the Swan Island Dahlia Festival each August. Such beauty! Like little living fireworks everywhere you look. The farm, tucked in the northwest corner of Canby, Oregon, is one of the preeminent dahlia sellers in the county, and the festival is their catalog come to life. Really worth a visit.
Nice person in Portland, Oregon, and beyond.
