Fresh from the Market

We have a few neat things this week!

Of course, it’s dahlia season, and oh, how we love dahlias! These pink and purple shades are nicely complemented by the raspberry astilbe.


I also picked up these very cool green berries with fuchsia stems. They were called Vargas berries on my invoice. I’m pretty sure that they have another name…wholesale flower vendors don’t always get them correct. Maybe something gets lost in the translation on the imported stuff?

In addition we also have this week:
