A happy flower in a perfect vase, greeting you at the door when you arrive home is hard to beat. Unless if you have 3 waggy-tailed, smiling dogs greeting you at the door too (no picture available because they are too squirmy and excited at this point— kinda overwhelming…!). I believe this particular dahlia is called ‘Blown Dry’ and it grew into this beauty at Corralitos Gardens in Corralitos, CA. For scale, it was approximately the size of my open hand! The color range was phenomenal as it changed from intense peachy coral to soft, sweet peach to sherbet orange with strokes of sunny yellow and hints of creamy magenta. The vase was hand blown by my partner Josh (at Josh Fradis Glass Art). We work together in combining art and nature, flowers and glass and frequently experiment with little collaborations that we have fun putting together! So probably, expect a lot more of these in the future.
