Delicious Dahlias

September 4, 2011

Describing the above arrangement of dahlias as ‘delicious’ was not my idea. One of my all-time favorite customers walked in the door of the Market shop yesterday, took one look at them, and proclaimed that they were delicious. Hard to argue with that. The coloring reminds me of the nectarines I used on the table for dinner the other evening. The mixing of the reds and yellows just speaks of the timing of the season. I liked these so much as they are, I just left them in this clear vessel, loaded them in the car, and plunked the whole thing right down on the middle of the dining table, ready for guests this afternoon.

A restful, relaxing Sunday to all of you.
