I stopped dead in my tracks when I saw a huge display of tulips for sale at the grocery store the other day. It is not even the end of October and they have arrived. Bless the hothouse growers. It used to be a huge deal to see my beloved tulips in early January, but to be able to mix them on a table with dahlias had me giddy. Call me a flower nerd. These things excite me to no end.
We had guests for dinner on Friday evening, so it gave me a chance to mix the 2 flowers, ever so simply, into a table setting. White was the only color of dahlia I found in the Market, but you know that always works for me. The white tulips working perfectly in vintage bottles. They tied in nicely with the white pumpkins too.
