A couple of little bouquets from today

This time of year I love bringing in flowers for the house. Here are a couple of small vases that I filled this morning. I thought they were especially sweet. I especially love the star shaped orchid Dahlias in the smaller vase.

So colorful and pretty. I love lots of color sand different textures.

I've never seen a Star Dahlia before. Where did you get yours? They are so unusual and beautiful. They remind me of Sea Anemones.

Thanks for the feedback. When you have nice flowers to work with its easy to put them in a vase. My partner can pull almost anything out of the road ditches and arrange it to look amazing - that takes talent.

The Dahlia is Juul's Allstar, which I am sure I got from Swan Island. It is always the first of my Dahlias to bloom. They are a favorite of mine every year.

The orange ruffled flower I am confused by. According to my records it is Galardia-Dazzler mix. But when I google that, the images are flat petaled. They are from seed this year, from Parks. They are nice, but flopping over and need support.

The vases are Daulton-Lambeth,(from before Royal Daulton was "royal") I have been collecting them for a few years. Its nice to actually use them, and they are perfect for the small arrangements.

Great looking arrangements. I tend to keep stuffing flowers in until eventually it looks OK to me. You've done a lot with just a few. Very nice.
