August 12, 2011

Why is everything harder when you're tired? Spent almost all day among beatiful flowers, weeding, deadheading, etc., and in the process pulled out, by accident, this gorgeous stem of burgeoning blackberry lily buds. The stem with buds attached is over 3 feet long. I groaned when I pulled it. Set it aside on wheelbarrow to use in an arrangement. But I don't have the energy to create an arrangement, and was hoping I could just sit this stem in a windowsill, alone, to fulfill my windowsill arrangement requirement. But the light is all wrong, the arranger too spent to come up with anything interesting. Know just this: the blackberry lilies are between bloom and fruit--a beautiful stage that deserves better press.
