February 11, 2012

When it came time to do my windowsill arrangement today, these where the two things in my immediate surroundings that interested me most visually. One was the Cook's Garden catalog (I spent a good part of the morning pouring over catalogs); the other was a coffee cup I'd dropped a vinca stem into (just to keep it in water as I washed the vase). Taken together, they seem to suit a winter day, although, in truth, John and I spent a fair amount of time outside today pulling trumpet vine off a chimney and pruning a Nellie Stevens holly. I felt bad throwing away a truckload of beautiful holly foilage. Should have used at least some of it in an arrangement.
