#FlowerCrushFriday - Flower Dyeing

It is inevitable that flowers die or that they get damaged when they are being transported from one place to the other.

#FlowerCrushFriday - Dahlia & Fun Facts

This week's #flowercrushfriday was a funny one because it was our intern's first time seeing dahlias.
