I've been enjoying my Saturday morning. I went outside to work, but after filling and hauling only three wheelbarrow loads of top soil, I decided it was just to hot for that. It's 85 degrees and very humid. So I rearranged some of the deck containers and made some new bouquets instead. Since most of my new Rembrandt dahlias have bloomed in shades of pink, I decided to embrace the color and go pink from top to bottom.
This old vase is totally adorable and I like to use it at least once each summer. I stuck a few branches of phlox in for the enticing aroma.
Can you guess what the vase is for this dahlia and phlox bouquet?
Look closely and think outside the box.
It's a light bulb cover! One of those things that hooks into the ceiling to cover the bulb.
I used both bouquets in my living room. That desk I painted in May makes a great receptacle for my garden bouquets.
This bouquet is totally different even though it also uses Rembrandt dahlias.
I did an entire table around this centerpiece. You can see the table here.
