some dahlias i picked from my autumn garden. they are seemingly flawless. look at their petals, perfect symmetry ! my favorite part of a dahlia is their celery-like smell when you snip the stems. they bloom late summer- autumn around here and are one of my favorties to use in fresh arrangements. i also think the name is so pretty. so much so that I tried to persuade my husband to name our last little baby dahlia, call her dolly for short. he didn't like it... :(
I love all things green. Succulent leaves, interesting textures, soft moss. I am a professional floral designer who has created a way to work artistically and still be home with my little girls. Fresh from the garden state, flores del sol.
