The Tiniest Dahlias

20120826-085319.jpg The variety of dahlias for sale right now at the Pike Place Market flowers stalls is mind blowing. It is just a riot of color as you walk past bucket after bucket. I spotted these tiny, tiny little dahlias yesterday, and was completely taken by the size and color variation. I actually don’t think I have ever seen any this small. They worked beautifully in a simple clear glass vase to brighten up a spot at the shop for the day. The delightful flower vendor told me the name of the flower, but it now escapes me. Anyone refresh my memory? I would love to know. Happy Sunday. T
