Posy Palette: Dahlia

Flower Urn

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!

Do you delight in dahlias as much as we do?

    Yes! Dahlias are a delight. We don’t have any in our garden, though. But as soon as they start popping up in the market, they are in constant rotation in our home. The colors are spectacular – and I love how you’ve colored them here. XO

    I love dahlias….but it’s a flower that I’m enjoyed and appreciated as I’ve matured. I was all roses, tulips and gerber daisies when I was younger.

    Are you enjoying our late afternoon thunderstorm? Should cool things down. Thank goodness…I’m wilting.

    I love them. My dad always has a gorgeous assortment every year. He always cuts a few blooms for me.
