The highlight of our trip to the Mendocino Coast in Northern California had to be the dahlias at the Mendocino Botanical Gardens. Though I must say that the performance of Bach at the Mendocino Music Festival wasn't far behind it. When we paid at the front entrance to go in to the gardens the young woman behind the counter noted, "Oh and you have got to see the dahlias they are a couple of weeks early and they are just dazzling!" I will say that she was absolutely correct. We spent a good part of our time there. Much of it just sitting on the bench looking at the blossoms and listening to the other guests exclaim at the beauty of the flowers as they came around the corner of the path into this part of the gardens. The admission price was well worth it. God's love and blessings to all, chris All images created with a Canon 7D and either a Canon 10-22mm lens or a 100mm macro lens.
