Bouquets

autumn art

I am not a floral designer, and my bouquets for the teachers didn't look like masterpieces.
But the process itself... I played, and played, and played with dahlias til it got dark. So, the following pictures do not necessarily show the final arrangements.
























It was so nice to see the teachers' smiles.
Thank you all for your kind comments on September 1st and Dahlias and Dahlia Kingdom .
I will be happy to share them with Mark.

  6. Those dahlias just shine in your lovely bouguets. I think you need to join a garden club. Do you suppose you could arrange from there for my garden club here?;)

  24. I thought they were beautiful in the garden, but the bouquets you made are even better! I bet you made a few teachers pretty darn happy with those.

  25. Tatyana your arrangements are as lovely as any "professional" and even lovelier as your flowers are so stunning. I love flower arrangements with mostly one variety of blossoms. What abundance! What lucky teachers!!! How good to honor them for they have one of the most important and difficult jobs and are not always appreciated enough!
