This is a bouquet my daughter made me as part of 50th wedding anniversary celebration last night. So pretty. And, oddly, it was full of colors I'd been enjoying on the cover of the spring McClure & Zimmerman catalog. The flowers needed to get into water this morning, so I deconstructed the bouquet and displayed the flowers and catalog together on the windowsill. Crazy jazzy!

The ferns, pine, camellia foliage, upside down roots, and red anemone were already in the windowsill when Rosanne Shalf arrived with pickled peppadew peppers and a vase of winterberries and paperwhites. Onto the windowsill they went immediately! All so pretty together. Thanks, Rosie!

I'm so glad I let myself garden yesterday, because today it's too rainy and wet. While tidying up the vegetable garden, I pulled out some spent Mexican mint (aka Mexican marigold) plants. After shaking the soil off their roots, I realized they were too pretty to throw in the compost heap. Very regularly spaced--almost like rays of a star. Hence, this.
