Sept. 21, 2011

This had such potential, but I'm too tired to retrieve it! One little container was supposed to hold one rescued zinnia (with broken stem), some hollyhock stems that I was throwing away (because they have a disease), and a perfectly beautiful arched stem with one red fruit on it from lily of the valley (something Louise Witherspoon alerted me to). But--this kind of thing always happens when you're pressed---the thing I liked best---the lily of the valley fruit--fell out of the container, landed behind the radiator, and, even with a flashlight, I can't find it!  So--I picked another lily of the valley stem--this one with multiple berries and not as pretty as the one with a single berry--and somehow ended up with two vases of material (some recycled from yesterday) that aren't half as pretty as the original one was. Grrrr!  There's also a tiny Lady fern stem in vase (actually one of those alcohol bottles you get on an airplane) on right.
