Our good friend, artist Frances Palmer, grows the most amazing dahlias in her garden and her love for these delightful blossoms has garnered her a wonderful nickname – the “Dahlia Lama!” While we’re a bit late with her advice on how to make dahlia bushes branch out and have more blooms (read it here for future reference), we’ve found some other dahlia-hued beauties to brighten your day!

A Purple Posy Palette
Spring has sprung here in the Northeast (though winter never really arrived!) and before the bright yellows of forsythia and daffodils take over, we’re happy to see the pale purple blooms of grape hyacinth in our flower beds… and love the fact that we can include this pretty purple palette in our homes (and in our wardrobes!)

There’s something about the simplicity and softness of dusty miller that helps us get through the winter months when all there is to look at is bare branches in the yard.
Not only is is this silvery-gray plant easy to grow, it’s scaringly draught-resistant (for those of you who, like us, neglect their real plants!)
Best of all, their neutral hue goes with absolutely everything… including your wardrobe!
P.S. You’ve probably guessed by now that we’re cutting back a bit on our posts and we hope you’ll keep on reading Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays… after all, isn’t quality better than quantity?
