Un peu de beauté pour la journée ~

I love Dahlias and I added quite a few to the garden this spring. They have been blooming for several months, giving me much pleasure and enjoyment.

I have lots of different colors and sizes but this one is my favorite. The flowers are not particularly big, about three to four inches wide; making up for it's size is the wonderful color combination and its prolific bloom.

I thought they looked rather pretty in this tulip vase...a little beauty for the day.

Have a wonderful  weekend. It is finally cooling off a bit here just in time for fall clean-up and planting.


  1. I love dahlias and have never really had much luck growing them but I try to buy them from local growers and the farmstands when they are in season. It was a stormy day here in Victoria and the leaves are littering the gardens and streets.
    I love your vignette with those pretty flowers and fabric.

  2. Beauty indeed!! The dahlias look perfect in your tulip vase!!

  3. I love dahlias, but I do not have good luck with them. Have a green thumb with everything else, but that. They are really stunning in the tulip vase. So glad that they are still blooming for you.
    Enjoy the wonderful weather.

  4. Adrienne, how beautiful. The colors are amazing. I hope I can remember to plant some next spring. I have been bad this year about planting bulbs..Happy Weekend..Judy

  5. Dahlias add such happy and beautiful color to the day. These ones are gorgeous!

  7. Your dahlias are gorgeous! Love the variegated colors.
