The Seasonal Flower Alliance {August 7 }

Written by


This week I discovered a brand new hobby, snapping the heads off flowers and taking pictures of them. If you’re over on Instagram you’ve likely seen snippets of my latest creative endeavor. Three words: scabiosa flowered zinnias. I thought I’d just keep on with the flower decapitation for my seasonal flower alliance post today.


I was going to get all crazy and try and find the names for every variety pictured but I’m already a day behind posting, so here ya go. Flower display includes one of every dahlia variety blooming in our patch right now. Pretty crazy, huh!?


I know it’s hard to find the time, especially during the height summer, but if you can sneak in a little flowering, I’d sure love to see what you create!

If you’d like to join in the fun, simply make up a bouquet or display using seasonal flowers, snap a photo, post it somewhere on the internet and then leave a link to it in the comments section here. If you’re on Instagram, you can use/search the hashtag #seasonalfloweralliance for even more flowery goodness.

    That’s really gorgeous! I’m in love with the amazing color of Dahlias! They are all over in neighbor gardens, i wish they were mine so i can clip away!

    I love the color arrangement of ur dahlias! I agree with one of your other readers–these pictures should be framed.

    Here is my arrangement that I picked from three gardens here in town. I picked way too many flowers because there were just so many blooming to chose from (dahlias, sunflowers, dill, clematis vines, sedum, lilies, etc). Consequently, my huge white pitcher vase looks dwarfed by the jungle of flowers :) I donated it for a special celebration and hope it brought some summer cheer to their party.

    Wow, that display is amazing. Such a great way to showcase all the Dahlias you are growing and an unusual way to display. It would make a beautiful photo on a wall.

    Here are my two vase fulls for this week.
