February 13, 2012

For the record, the daffodils I picked yesterday with frozen stems thawed happily in the house and are still looking perky.

Today, on my walk, I picked buttercups (amazingly blooming by the roadside) and carried them home in a cup I also found along the roadside. Filled the cup with water from a ditch to keep the buttercups happy. Once home, I combined the buttercups with some other, more seasonal, things: red maple stem lined with bursting buds and male red cedar foliage with tiny little yellow "cones" forming at the tips. The container is a spool of trellising material with a large tube dropped into the center of it.
