a new {to me} discovery...i

i'm sure it comes as no surprise that i love flowers...particularly peonies and ranunculuses.  but these flowers are only in season in late spring/early summer.  so what do you do in the fall?  well...i have recently been smitten with dahlias.  i had no idea how fabulous they were until i saw them used for a party shared on simplesong.  

i saw these beautiful arrangements at the stunning blog the full bouquet.
don't these just shout fall?

 so gorgeous...
and now that i have 'discovered' these beauties, i need to come up with a wonderful reason to have some in my house!!!

How about just because they are so gorgeous?

i agree with your sister.
flowers need no justification
