Flower arrangements to say FU for February

Flower arrangements to say FU for February

This is just a lovely post featuring beautiful flowers that I grew in warm weather and sunshine in my garden last year. Take that February, you miserable, miserable month.

Toward the end of last summer, when the flowers were blooming faster than a teenage girl at a Bon Jovi concert (how is that an incredibly modern reference?), I decided to start taking photos of all the arrangements.

This summer, when I’m smarter and more organized, as I always will be in the future, I’ll try to start this project a little earlier in the season so it’s not all dahlia arrangements.

I welcome you into February with these 18 arrangements that will help us stick to the month of waxy chocolate and lace lingerie.

There is not a single red rose in the bouquet.

I’ll be planting a lot of the same, plus I’ll remember this year (because again, the future self is much better at things than the present or past self) to plant more greenery.

All I have are flowers, but to make beautiful flower arrangements, you need as much greenery as you do flowers.

You can learn more about types of dahlias and other flowers in these posts.

I’ve been very lucky with everything, except for Henriette dahlia which turned out not to be Henriette dahlia but something else entirely. That’s why it’s important to mark your dahlias when you dig them up right away.

Spring begins in…
