A few arrangements with Dahlias

mandolls(4)September 8, 2012

I have been having lots of fun arranging the dahlias this year. Here are some I put together this morning.

Akita & Maniac (Maniac-top right- doesn't usually do this for me, but it works perfectly with the Akitas)

Your arrangements are beautiful, Mandolls! I'm meeting some lovely dahlias for the first time this year. Going to have a hard time deciding which to order for next season! I'm always looking for new arranging ideas, so thanks for sharing. :)

Thanks - like I said it has been fun to be more playful with arranging them this year. I bought a group of old metal spiked frogs on e-bay which have opened up the possibilities as to what I can use from my pottery collection.

For the past 3 years I havent bought tubers. I have been trading tubers with people on this forum. Except for the Pineland Princess, which I have had for at least 6 years, every one of those in the pics were traded for either this year or last. I find I cant really tell which ones I love until I grow them. So last year my trade criteria was simply - if I dont have it already, I will trade for it. I got a few that I am not so excited about, but I also got some that I doubt I would have chosen, that I love.
