As the week begins I join Cathy with In A Vase On Monday, an opportunity to share an arrangement using materials collected from the garden.
I have chosen a simple arrangement featuring a pass-along dahlia that began blooming during the past week. The small flowers have a nodding form which make them difficult to position with much accuracy, but their bright color is joyous.

Many thanks to Cathy for hosting each Monday and giving us a chance to express our flower arranging passion. Visit her at Rambling In The Garden to discover what she and others are placing In A Vase On Monday.
