Today, Cherry Ong, a regular GPOD writer from British Columbia, Canada, is sharing photos from her recent trip.
I think your readers will like some photos of me visiting the Chilliwack Sunflower Festival.Surrounded by hundreds of sunflowers, it’s a wonderful feeling (sunflower Per year yearly), Dahlia (Dahlia × variabilis, Zone 8-10 or as tender bulb) and gladiolus (gladiolus Hybrid, zone 8-10 or as a tender light bulb)-like you are hugged by a good friend!
For those who are curious about the breed sunflower These are some of the tag names found in the field: Orange Hobbit, Little Becka, Sundance Kid, Double Dandy, Autumn Beauty, Lemon Queen, Lemon Eclair, Stella Gold, Orange Ruffles, Black Beauty, Ruby Eclipse, Red Wave, Velvet Queen, Moonshadow, Jade, Salt N Roast, Sunrich Orange.
This double-flowered sunflower has an extra layer of folded petals.
This two-color sunflower may seem to be of the “Ruby Eclipse” variety.
This sunflower has unusual narrow petals; it looks like the “Stella Gold” variety.
The wide view of the sunflower field shows all the flowers of different sizes and colors.
It’s amazing-endless flowers!
There are incredible black flowers on this flower, which may be the “Black Beauty” variety. The extra beauty comes from the stems and leaf veins, which are also a bit darker.
There is also a fairly large Dahlia boundary!SecondRochure said that 60 types of dahlias were planted this holiday. These are the varieties listed along the patch: Alfred Grill, Andrew Charles, Barabosa, Cafe au Lait, Ferncliff Inspiration, Happy Halloween, Jaxon, Karma Gold, Penhill Dark Monarch, Purple Flame, Purple Taiheijo, Triplecolor.
