“When I think of fall flowers, the first thing that comes to mind is the dahlia. I think that most florists would include dahlias as a favorite, especially the large dinner plate varieties. They make such a statement in any arrangement. Dahlias also come in an astounding array of colors from the palest blush to the most intense purple. The only difficulty with dahlias is that they are very delicate and do not like to be shipped. About a year and a half ago, I spied a dahlia garden at a church in Avondale. I literally turned my car around and wandered through the church until I found someone with information about the flowers. They are grown by Don Ehrett, a wonderful man and a master dahlia grower. We became fast friends. Being able to order flowers locally is a treat as the flowers are at their freshest and Don’s dahlias are hands down the most beautiful I have ever seen. He sells his dahlias at Whole foods.
