I love dahlias. They rank right up there with peonies and roses for me - romantic and decadent and oh so feminine. I splurge on a small bouquet of them almost every week at the farmer's market this time of year to keep on my dining room table. They make me happy.
Matt found out that there is a dahlia farm within 20 minutes of us and we drove out there last night to walk around. Gorgeous is an understatement - there's just something that takes your breath away seeing fields of such vibrant, luxurious flowers. I didn't want to leave!
