January 29, 2013 -- asparagus with catalog

I love looking at this! The greens and whites are just so pretty.

I started with the asparagus, which I bought at the grocery store yesterday. First put them in a vase but didn't like that, so I tied them up with this brown wire (which looks like twine). Then I went looking for a seed catalog to display with this little splayed stack of asparagus. Love this Natural Gardening catalog cover anyway, but it looks especially pretty with the asparagus! 

Not to worry, I won't waste the asparagus. After photographing this,  I dropped the stems into a Pyrex cup with a little water in it, so they'd stay fresh until supper. They're still on the windowsill, next to the catalog, in the Pyrex cup, and that actually looks pretty, too.
