February daffodils

These aren't the first daffodils of the season, but they're the first batch blooming in enough abundance to pick them like this. Love the early evening sky in the background!

pine snippets

Three little pine snippets--jammed together--in a little brown bottle. Found them lying on the Trolley Line Trail this afternoon. I'm guessing squirrels snipped them off from the tips of Virginia pines?

old herb containers

I definitely need to get out. I've been snowed in so long I've alphabetized my herbs and spices! Also found an embarrassingly large number of duplicates and old, old herbs. Threw some out; consolidated others, resulting in lots of leftover containers, one of which may be an antique! See the can in the middle from Ann Page (as in A&P)? Is there even an A&P grocery store any more?? I harvested the leaves from things growing in the house--some scented geranium and basil leaves--to fill the some of the discarded containers.

frozen camellia

I picked this camellia flower yesterday morning and it was looking only partly freeze-burned then. Today it's almost all brown. Still, though, it looks like a flower and I welcome it on the windowsill! I'm thinking of it as "antiqued."

sea creatures (in bark and evergreen foliage)

This little piece of evergreen Chamacyparis reminded me of a coral or something like it under the sea, so I tried to arrange it in a way that showed its structure off. That's why it's submerged in the glass container. The "creature" on top is a piece of rolled birch bark.
