The 104th annual Snohomish County Dahlia Society show was once again a wonderful success. For the 2nd year in a row our bloom count was down due to a competing show, but the blooms that were there were truly outstanding. Ken Greenway swept the top two horticultural prizes by garnering the Best Single Bloom entry with a stunning bloom of Clearview Lily and the Best Triple Bloom entry with three nicely matched blooms of Ryecroft Jan. The Zuks, from Vancouver B.C., gobbled up the other two major awards. Jennifer won Best Basket in Show with a very nice exhibit of Sandia Flirt and her husband, Richard, won the Best Arrangement with one of his legendary underwater arrangements in the "Finding Nemo" arrangement category.
