July 19, 2011-- orange punch

These orange Japanese lanterns add some punch to yesterday's lackluster arrangement. Which just goes to prove that if you have the nerve to start something (even if it's bad), something else may come along to rescue it (because you're looking for it!). The Japanese lanterns came my way as I was weeding today. They were hidding under big rhubarb leaves and weed leaves in the garden. I pulled some of their most insect-damaged leaves off to make them show up better here. I'm embarrassed to say it, but I found myself wishing for a hard frost today---something to put an end to the biting insects!
