Dahlias are my end of summer luxury. I love them dotted around the garden and I love to get creative and bring them inside. If there is one thing I have understood with the passing years, it is that I absolutely need to get creative each and everyday!
If I don’t do something creative in a day, or even worse for several days, I feel literally uncomfortable.
Do you feel this way too?! In today’s busy world it is only too easy to get tied up in endless to-do lists, that of course we rarely manage to get through, and only finish the day feeling more frustrated than satisfied.
But if we carve out a little bit of time to get creative, I find that all that frustration just disappears into thin air. There are so many ways to create: cooking, gardening, raising children, running a business and also playing with flowers.
I put this arrangement together this week. The dahlias in the garden are my end of summer luxury. They are so generous, and so full of colour, I simply cannot resist bringing them inside. This is a big bouquet, but they work just as well used as single blooms. And the great thing about growing dahlias is that it’s really important to keep cutting them if you want them to continue to flower. So there are no regrets about cutting the blooms.
I’d love to know what your creative fix is? Your go-to thing that helps you to relax and gives you new energy?
