This year, I didn't give myself the chance to spend the money elsewhere. I strapped myself to the couch, made a list, browsed some websites, and placed my order. Around $60 later (including one free gift and shipping) I have stunning collection of 10 dahlias on their way from dahlia.com. Not bad considering that amount would have only bought me two new roses!
I google image-searched the dahlias to give you a glimpse of what I ordered. I can't wait to photograph these beauties, and make bouquets!
