Last year we had Fading Dahlias on an Unpainted Shelf. This year we managed to paint the shelf (miracles happen!) and so here is round two, same vase, same Café-au-Lait dahlias, different whisky bottle.
Several people on Instagram have mentioned that this year the Café-au-Laits seem to be tinged with pink. Some people’s C-a-Ls looked positively rose-coloured. Mine are not so extreme, but if you compare this vase with last year’s you might see what I mean. I should qualify that these are exactly the same tubers as last year, and I have not made any post-exposure adjustments to the colour.
In a Vase on Monday is hosted by the inimitable Cathy at Rambling in the Garden, and I recommend visiting her page to see her vase and follow links to all the other vases created by garden bloggers across the world today.
