more radish shenanigans

So, then, the color of the radishes sent me back out into the garden to see if I didn't have something equally electric. Turns out I did--some small dahlia flowers. But when I tried to photograph them together on the windowsill--the dahlias and the radishes--I ended up with a crazy/wacky windowsill and mullion line. My inability to competently use the "straighten" function of my photo software resulted in this wacky photo, which, for reasons I can't explain, I love


radishes, in new home

So: this was so much fun. First. because company was coming, I moved my sprouting radishes into a more elegant home (from discarded plastic container into low yellow dish). They felt so honored and will, I'm betting, send up greener/straighter leaves tomorrow as they adjust to their new home.

These store-bought radishes wanted to grow so badly I had to let them--in a plastic dish on the windowsill  Their greenery looking happier, and less "refrigerator starved of light" every day!

Chinese long bean

Drizzly day, but the birds and I were outside anyway. Spotted a Chinese long bean vine growing up into a sugar maple. It had started in the compost heap! Full of blooms AND long beans!

posies in Rosie's water bottle

Returned Rosanne Shalf's water bottle today, and as per my mother's teachings, it couldn't go back empty. Filled it with zinnias, celosia, and an aster that Rosanne's grandfather used to call "Farewell Summer,"

Oh, and the vine with the orange-ish flowers is crossvine (Bignonia).

selaginella fern

This little fern in round basket usually sits on my side porch, but it was looking so pretty this morning, I decided to bring it in and enjoy it on the windowsill. Love the way the fern has begun to grow between the twigs in the basket.

September honeysuckle

Vince Tolson created this beautiful little arrangement--honeysuckle in a tiny vodka bottle. And it smells SO good!
