Dreaming of Dahlias...

It is almost dahlia season and the garden is filled with budding plants.  Dahlias are my favorite late summer flower and every year I add a new variety or two just to watch them bloom and enjoy their beauty in the hot August sun.  They are one of the few flowers that happily endure our warm summer temperatures as long as they have a bit of shade.  Also a stunning cut flower, they are beautiful in arrangements.

These soft pink dahlias are from last summer, as I'm still awaiting this year's blooms.  Looking back at the arrangements I created is a way for me to begin planning the designs I will do when the new flowers appear.    

This post features Lavender Perfection dinnerplate dahlias with hydrangeas and roses.

The burnt red dahlias in this early autumn floral capture the spirit of the garden as the seasons start to change.

I always look forward to using dahlias in centerpieces near the end of summer as in this table design

But for now, I'll just dream of dahlias...
