The Travelling Dahlias

July 11, 2016

It began with the fluttery white dahlias from the Market dancing about the Sunday breakfast table in town.  Along with the bundle of sweet peas, they made a handsome addition to the morning.  One of the things I love most about flowers is the hearty/fragile contrast. It is what makes them so intriguing.  I knew the dahlias would only last a few more days (the fragile) but knew they would handle the ferry ride (the hearty) just fine and be a welcome addition all snuggled together on the ottoman out on the island.
