sunflower meets castor bean leaf

The only thing I don't like about dealing with flowers is traveling with them, because they often suffer in the process. Sometimes it's a heat issue; others it's the jostling that breaks stems and weakens necks. Case in point: this pretty sunflower broke at the neck yesterday while being transported from one garden to another in my car. Couldn't throw it away, so I sort of propped it up in this vase, where its head could rest on the lip of the vase. Later, I added the castor bean leaf, which was one of many I stripped from some stems I'm going to use in a big arrangement later this week. A good use for both, I think!
