September 13, 2011--coxcomb

This isn't exactly what I'd wanted to do with this coxcomb, but it's close. I had wanted to pave the top of a footed bowl with it then have the sedge coming out of it like fireworks, but, alas, my bowl is at Flower Camp and I'm in Ashland. So I tried the same sort of thing in a different contaner. Result below. I usually have lots of sedge coming up in weedy areas at this time of year and I love to use it in arrangements, but this year, for some reason I have little, so I added a couple of stems of umbrella grass to the sedge to bulk it up a little. They have the same umbrella-like shape.
