Six Word: Cheer up … give me a smile

My entry for Debbie’s Six Word Saturday Challenge.

Today I need cheering up.  I just read that the dahlia festival this year is already cancelled.  The fields might be open to the public, but …. I was so hoping things would be back to normal by then.

Here is a photo I took of the fields last year on August 11, 2019.  The dahlias were about three weeks from prime viewing.

I always sing this song to myself when I need cheering up.  It’s from the original Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie.

I’ve put together a list of challenges and their hosts.  So if you know a challenge host, please direct them to my blog.  Feel free to contact me anytime.  I hope everyone will be able to use my lists.

Qi (energy) hugs

    • I don’t go to the festival because there are way to many people. But they plant gardens for people to roam around in and about. That is where I usually get most of my photos. I only live 5 minutes away so I go off hours and early mornings to get my photos. I’m betting they won’t plant their gardens this year.

  1. Oh no! I’m so sorry about the cancellation of the dahlia show! I suppose I should check online to find out if ours is also. I hope you will still have plenty of dahlias to photograph, as your flower photos are so spectacular!


    • I just hope we don’t get another outbreak of the virus. I fear (in the US) we are opening things back up to soon. Too many people have suffered and died already.


  2. Oh, that’s a shame! It’s still a way off, Cee. Maybe things will be much better by then. Let’s live in hope. Sending hugs! 🙂 🙂


  3. Oh no, the dahlia festival cancelled? If you are five minutes away, you can look at them without the crowds, but now it looks like you wont have as many dahlias, and your dahlia photos are some of my favorites. Every time I hear another cancellation, it is really hard to take, but I guess it would be too hard to control the crowds. Still, outdoor activities seem less dangerous. Thanks for the cheer up video!! really appreciate it.


    • So glad you liked the cheer up video. 😀 I normally go to the dahlias off hours so I have plenty of photo taking opportunities. But If they are roped off, I can’t get to them, except maybe from the car. And don’t worry about not seeing dahlias this year…I have post nearly 1000 on my blog and still have thousands of photos I probably could post yet. They aren’t going away 😀


  4. Oh, I am sorry Cee. You have worked so hard to be ready for that. Have you seen my post about Virtual Chelsea next week? I am hoping that will be something cheery. Of course we can hardly take pictures of that, which thought made me let out a very big sigh.


    • All flower fields are restricted this year. I’ve always felt luck and fortunate I live in a place where I can actually get most any flower that grows here in their natural state and not in nurseries or cut. If I let myself, I could be really bummed out. 😀

      • I do understand or at least I think I do. The worst thing we can do is pretend not to care. If we were good at writing down noises we could put some disgusted, cheesed off ones like ‘Grrruhh!’ and that might make us feel better. ‘Drat!’ doesn’t come close.
