dahlia 3

Some happy colors for your soul!

Dahlias in beautiful bright jewel tones always makes me cheerful.

I love that they come in different shapes too.
The round ones are my current favorite. So very cute!
This will be a fun event to work on.

Scabiosa is one of my favorite flower to accent with.
Cute button shaped flowers, whimsy stems... and lovely colors too!
This dark colored ones are probably our favorite among several colors that are available. (ie. white, red pink) We choose this often not only to bring textural interest, but to sharpen the color palette a little. Brings the arrangements and bouquets elegant sophistication while keeping the natural feeling.

I love flowers that are wonderfully multitasking!

dahlia 2

Beautiful large dahlia!

The name is " cafe au lait".
Granted that this particular photo is of the rare and random pinkish one that was in this bunch, (it was so pretty, I couldn't resist) but this dahlia usually comes as gentle creamy color.

So, this name is bit puzzling to me.
If I were to rename her, it will be something more creamy like "heavenly cream" or "summer vanilla" ...
Just a random irrelevant thought during a lovely summer afternoon...
