2 Dahlia girls

My grandmother had dahlias in her garden (click here for a peek) and I think that's the only memory I have of these flowers. As a little girl I liked the colors but not their spikey petals. Through the #2flowergirls project I rediscovered them, not far from our home in one of the community gardens. Like in my grandma's garden, there was a small flower bed along the border of the garden with numerous kinds of colorful dahlias. Some even look a bit like bundled "rolled tongues". That made me smile 🙂

If you want to join and spread some dahlia love in October, it's easy: read more about it on Madame-Love and Glomerylane.

  1. OH MY. I think that first photo could be the most beautiful photo I have ever seen. I love the softness yet sturdy feel the Dahlia expresses. I always love seeing your photos, they make me feel good. Thank you for sharing! xx

    1. Oh wow you make me blush Jocelyn! I really liked how you styled your dahlias: very delicate and the mini Thonet chair is just so adorable! xx

  2. Oh the Dahlias are the peonies of the fall. They are really pretty. I may jump on the bandwagon because we also have a Dahlia garden just few blocks away.

  3. Hi Judith, it's so funny I can just say exaclty the same about dahlias: from my granma's garden (when I did not quite like them) till today when I suddently have discovered their beauty. Love your last picture specimens.
    Like your blog more and more :-) should make more time to follow on projects and ideas.

    1. Thank you Stefania for your kindness! So nice to hear that you like my blog more and more. I hope it inspires you indeed to take more time for nice projects and just make it happen. It's not always easy to do so, with a family and/or a busy job, but it's so gratifying and simply makes me happy :)
