June 21, 2011--feverfew

Window is open this morning---first day of summer---but I bet it won't be by this afternoon. This arrangement is all feverfew (with one small hosta leaf).  Seems the perfect flower for first day of summer.  I'm especially enjoying this particular feverfew, because I started it from seed in February. It's the kind with flowers that look like yellow-centered daisies, as opposed to the more common feverfew with all-white blooms that look like little mums. I like this variety, which I learned about from a friend, MUCH better than the mum-y variety.  Both smell like chrysanthemums, and I love the fact that their fragrance lingers on your fingers long after you've stopped fiddling with them.
