Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share an arrangement using materials collected from our gardens.
Technically I did not grow these peachy-hued beauties, but they grew within a few hundred feet of my garden. My sweet neighbor Eileen shared with me some of her first dahlia blooms (that she has ever grown). Both of us were delighted by her success and I was touched by her generosity.
A few sprigs of chrysanthemums from my front porch were a perfect color to accompany the dahlias and added some nice textural contrast. Stalks of rich green fern provided movement and line to the design.
