Please - no inward groans.
I know, you thought we were done with the dahlias for now.
But happily for me we're not.
Almost, but not quite.
Thanks to my Dad, who has been lovingly looking after things at the beach for us, when we arrived at the bach for Easter, this is what greeted us...
So you can imagine my excitement!
So much for unpacking. I was more intent on flower dis-arranging.
Well, I certainly wouldn't call it 'arranging'! More like 'picking & plonking in the nearest jar'!
Oh that beautiful magenta pink dahlia is just the most perfect pompom-like ball.
Dahlias and mint. And an old jar. My most favourite combination.
And of course, for the five hour journey back to Wellington, I sat all the way carefully nursing a bunch of my precious blooms.
By chance, as I was shifting piles of paper about on my desk yesterday, I came across this quote which I tore from a magazine some time ago.
I can't tell you what wise soul said this, because that bit isn't there, but the part I kept says...
'A flowerless room is a soulless room... but even
one solitary living flower may redeem it'
I couldn't agree more. I've added the quote to my inspiration wall.
Have a lovely weekend.
(Love these short weeks!)
