For those that have been following my blog for some time, you know that my mother is obsessed with dahlias. They are in full bloom and my mother lovingly refers to her crop as the dahlia forest. With too many blooms to keep to herself, she has given me permission to cut, cut, and cut some more. This is the batch I brought to the office to share with my co-workers. They were so grateful and thankful. Such a joyful feeling to share with others something as beautiful as these. Thanks Mom!
Flowers… are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty outvalues all the utilities of the world. -Ralph Waldo Emerson
