If somebody had asked me a few years ago “what does a Dahlia flower look like?” I wouldn’t have known. My love for gardening is quite recent and I am determined to support the vintage Dahlia flower in becoming popular again. Last year my neighbor had the most beautiful crop of different variety dahlias growing in his allotment. I would love to share some of his flowers with my readers today and see if you too can identify what a Dahlia looks like and maybe eventually fall in love with one of the varieties yourself.
If you’re a dog owner and believe that you’re living up to the responsibilities that come along with being one by taking the utmost care of your dog, showering them with love and buying them everything they need to thrive and be happy, then think again!
For this year’s Earth Day, I wanted to remind all dog owners out there that just like you have a responsibility of taking the best possible care of your dog so they live a healthy and happy life, you also have the responsibility of ensuring that the life your dog lives on Earth leaves as little negative impact on the environment as possible.
This spring we have enjoyed creating faux flower crowns and wreaths with flowers that we chose from the homeware section in our local Homesense store. There were bundles of fabulous faux flowers to choose from, including foliage and it really was difficult to decide which colours we wanted to take home. Spring time offers an abundance of fabulous colours and blossoms so we decided to opt for colours with a pink hue.
The tools needed to make crowns and wreaths are very simple and include wire cutters and florist wire. There is a headband tutorial on another blog post which you can view by clicking here. And to catch an idea of how we made our wreath you can pop over to my You tube channel and watch this quick visual tutorial.
