Just back from a really fun trip to D.C. for a nature journaling workshop, but when I got home I was tired with little time to recoup before needing to go out again. How to rejuvenate myself? Decided to do a windowsill arrangement and it worked perfectly. I feel centered again and can now dance on!

Somewhere between the colors in these two photos are the correct colors of these flowers: hyacinth bean, Tatarian aster, and globe amaranth. The color I like best in this conglomeration shows up pretty well in both photos. It's the reddish purple of the hardy begonia and kale leaves.

I actually picked these pods on Sept. 12, when I was visiting Bill Horner at the Hermitage. They are climbing milkweed pods, but these particular ones should be called traveling milkweed pods, because I took them all over the state with me when I was giving windowsill arranging talks this month. I've been astonished at how long they've held up, and they're showing no signs of flagging even now.
