One of the sad things about the end of summer is that it seems all the flowers die.  Except for one glorious flower that gets even better in the fall: the lovely dahlia.

The Dahlia House in Portland Oregon

Getting fresh cut dahlias in Portland can get expensive, though.  And heading out to the farms is such a long drive.  (although- well worth making a day trip out of.  Sauvie’s island and Hood River are great options.) So, where to go close by? 

The Old Dahlia House located at 8005 SE Mill st in Portland Oregon has fresh cut dahlias from August through November!  You guys, this place is soooo cool!  There is a self-serve cooler with already cut flowers and a mailbox where you drop in your payment.  The whole set up is on an honor system, so please be respectful and honest when picking out your flowers.

 If you have an event and want more than just one or two bouquets you can call ahead and they will do their best to respond to your needs.
