Nancy's Dahlias


Robin and I were fortunate to be able to go and visit a friend of my co-worker's  who lives in Davis, California.  I had mentioned to my co-worker that we wanted to photograph more varieties of Dahlias and unbenounced to me she knew a friend, Nancy,  who was very open to allowing us to visit her home and garden.   Nancy even suggested that we could come over at 7am on Saturday morning to ensure we got the best light.  Awesome!  After getting up at 5:30 am, we got ready and headed out on the road. On our way there we saw a rain storm over the city of Sacramento in the morning light which was beuatiful and then the sun came up and there were distinct rays coming through the mist, equally as stunning.  No photos of those, but great memories. 
When we arrived at Nancy's she graciously invited us into her home, greeting us with her two small dogs (they threatened to lick us to death), and then escorted us out to her garden in the backyard,  to the side of her home. We became very excited to see  many Dahlias in a variety of  colors.  Thank you Jesus for such beauty!!!!  We began shooting and got lost in the wonderful experience.  Robin and I shared our excitement with each other and Nancy.  Nancy, at one point, even brought out a step stool for us so that we could shoot above the flowers.  Too cool.  After about an hour and one-half  I finished (Robin had been done for about 10-15 minutes) and I went into the house where coffee was awating me.  We chatted for some time, shared our stories, and then Nancy was kind enough to escort us to the Davis Farmer's Market where we found wonderfully fresh fruit and vegetables.  What a great start to the day.  We just want to say how thankful we are to Nancy and to my co-worker.    Below are some of our photos.  Half are mine and half are Robin's.  You can try to guess whose is whose......Please enjoy and leave a comment....
