Summer Flowers – Still Life

I have been daydreaming about a big bouquet of flowers for months. Yesterday my dream came true!

My sister Emily made this from dahlias she grew herself, snapdragons, and other flowers from our mom’s garden. Isn’t it spectacular?! It’s her first large-scale arrangement, too! 😮

I wanted to show the true colors (above), but this morning I couldn’t resist also taking some low-light photos, inspired by Dutch paintings. 😀

Thank you, sis! ❤
