March 12, 2012 -- Klee and Kandinsiky

Send a flower arranger off to Washington and she comes back influenced by Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky (if she's visited the Phillips Gallery). First result: unable to remove plant debris from kitchen sink (after cleaning out windowsill vases), because the array there is so beautiful.

Then enjoy just the ease of picking up some of those "not quite dead yet" marsh marigold leaves from the sink and gathering them up into tiny vase.

Then spend most of ther rest of the day outside where all sorts of things vie for display in the windowsill, but what ends up there (in addition to things already mentioned) are flowering arugula (in tallest bottle), some remnants from pruned Pieris japonica (in other bottles), a periwinkle flower, some Chinese temple bell flowers, and a few daffodils.

I don't remember its name, but I really, really love this daffodil, which has orange markings around the rim of its cup, yellow-green at the base of its cup, and thick,ivory-colored "petals."
