January 17, 2013 -- January corn

I actually found this corn stalk on my walk yesterday. The one stalk, with its leaves still attached, was lying on the roadside for reasons unknown to me. Maybe it had fallen off a farm truck? It had been in the rain a long time (it was raining when I found it), and its colors were the richest golds and browns you've ever seen. I brought it home and tried to think of a way to display it that wouldn't involve cutting the stem, but couldn't come up with anything I liked. In the end, I cut the stem into segments and just laid them on the lip of a vase holding the beautiful, beautiful leaves, which I spread out a bit.
