a view from the laundry pile…

…it's all about perspective.

Dahlias at Port Gamble

on August 20, 2013

Fred and I went with out-of-town friends to Port Gamble, Washington for the day to show them around. I love it there (and not just because it was the setting for “Zombies of Mass Destruction”) — and I don’t think we could’ve picked a better day for being outside if we tried. It was beautiful.

Port Gamble is an old Victorian seaport and was the longest operating sawmill (142 years!) in the country. Here’s the Wikipedia link if you’re interested in more information on it;  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Port_Gamble,_Washington#Events

The county Dahlia club has some of their beautiful flowers growing in front of the Port Gamble Post office and I couldn’t resist snapping a few shots of them as they were stunning and perfect — and I think I need some for my own garden!

(I saved the best for last. I love this one. The crisp white and deep red against the green foliage is amazing).
