A Flowery Weekend

A friend told me yesterday about an area farm that sells dahlias to florists.  I asked if she knew of any local places that had "pick-your-own" flowers, and after she contacted the dahlia farm to ask, they mentioned that they were cutting down all the crop for the year tomorrow. we went and got literal bucketloads of gorgeous gorgeous dahlias, a dozen or more varieties. 

 I had enough to make bouquets for every room in my parents' / grandma's home, and a nice size bouquet for our living room. 

 Of course a blog entry wouldn't be complete without a picture of Corvin.

Yesterday I also gathered some sedum from my garden and brought it with me, along with an evening gown I found at Goodwill for a dollar, to a photo shoot with photographer Anna Inez on her tree swing.  She has sent one image from the shoot so far, and I absolutely love how very like a Victorian postcard it looks.

Hooray for flowers!

  1. Dahlias are so romantic, alas - they do not grow well in our high village with the snows. your images are lovely ... and Corvin, well! x
