"Grapes with Dahlias"

Artist's Inspiration

I’d been meaning to photograph grapes for a while, and when I found these dahlia blossoms I thought that they would look beautiful together.  I used wooden nesting boxes that my father made (thanks, Dad!) to stack and use as support for the botanicals.  Add edible greens including parsley, collard greens and swiss chard in varying shades of green and purple, a dash of salt (kidding), and voila!  a nutritious dinner with florals on the side. 🙂
