September 15, 2012 -- weary sunflowers

These sunflowers reflect my condition--weary. Spent three full days on my feet arranging flowers and wasn't too excited about doing a windowsill arrangment when I got home....until I realized I'd left a big, broken sunflower stalk on the back porch and I could easily harvest its weary heads. I'd kept the stalk just because I liked its branching pattern and thought I might use the greed backsides of the flowers in an arrangement someday. Little did I know it was the weary faces I'd be feeling a sense of kinship with today!

I cut these stems off their original branch and orgainzed them in pairs like this, because somehow they seemed more like nodding heads this way.
