I love dahlias. At this tine of year, dahlias are going into every arrangement that I make at the flower shop.
A: As we try to be very seasonal, they are the new flower in season.
B: They are huge and cheap, two words that floral designers love to hear.
C: So many yummy colours and shapes.
This arrangement has two sizes of very, very, pale yellow dahlias, and a creamy rose. I love monochromatic arrangements. These are actually old flowers from the store and this is in my kitchen at Kilbourne Grove.
This is a really lovely one, the flash of the camera really changed the colour. It is a very dark red, almost black, very velvety looking.
It is such a shame the season is so short. We buy these at the Food Terminal from a local grower. They are not available until late summer and will end with the first frost.
