We acquired some absolutely gorgeous flowers last weekend. Ryan very sweetly encouraged me to pick a fantastic bouquet of dahlias while at the farmer's market. I couldn't pass up this bunch. Don't you just love the bright pinks against the pale green? Gosh, I love dahlias! These seem to almost glow.
The next day, we stopped at the farm to buy some pickling supplies - more on that later - and saw these fabulous gladiolus. For only $3. Really, there was no point in resisting. The colors in the flowers remind me of butter, of daffodils, of cantaloupe.
