November 30, 2011--little blue stem, etc.

This little concoction looks very November to me. In it are some stems of little blue stem (a native grass with white, fluffy seed heads), some winterberry (red berries), and a cluster of florets from a dried hydrangea blossom. The hydrangea blossoms look almost bronzy in the sun. And some of them have been skeletonized by insects so they are lacy. Quite pretty. But thing I enjoyed most about doing this arrangement was seeing the sun create a shadow of the flower heads on the curtain. It doesn't show in the first photo (which is probably the better photo), but it does show in the second one.
