Mauve Dahlias


I went to St. Albert's Botanic Park on Monday with my Nanny and my kids.  We had planned to go to the nearby splash park, but the day was too cloudy and chilly.  We toured a couple of the beautiful gardens and the members-only area before being driven back inside by the swarms of mosquitoes.  I bought some Asiatic lilies on sale, as well as these adorable mauve dahlia earrings from the gift shop.


I love the colour.  It's subtle, feminine, and perfectly complements the colours in the scarf I got for my birthday.

  1. so sweet - first that you spent the day with your Nanny (I'm Nanny too!) and secondly the earrings. They remind me of the little dot earrings we used to wear back in the 70's.

    1. Little dot earrings would be adorable! I think I need some turquoise or pink dots ;-)
