The flower selection this week was much fresher. Last week, the dahlia's I picked up wouldn't even last 24 hours. Petals were falling off left and right. I spoke to the owner there, they cut their flowers every Wednesday night, so the best day to go there is actually Thursday.
I ended up one bunch of white dahlias ( I'm a little tired of them now) and two bunches of purple irises.

My purple irises opened up and they are starting to look so pretty !
