November 11, 2012 -- carnations with Jacob's ladder shadow

I spent almost all day outside today and encountered some gorgous things, but by the time I thought about my windowsill arrangement, it was after dark. So: I decided to play with carnations again. Turned out to be not as easy as I thought, because I chose this little white pitcher, which took a lot of stems to fill it up and I found myself refusing to use the biggest, most open flowers. They just looked too stiff and floristy. Also, to loosen things up even more, I decided I needed some foliage, so I wound up outside in the dark after all... where I found, by feel, three sprigs of Jacob's ladder foliage. All the effort turned out to be worth it, though, because I just love the shadow the Jacob's ladder foliage cast.
