camellias with fern fronds

These camellia flowers are in bottles with some of the fern fronds I salvaged earlier in the week. I really enjoyed creating this because 1) the cold early morning air, as I walked out to pick the camellias, was fabulous; 2) because I liked reusing the fern fronds, and 3) because I took my time doing it. I had to take my time because my right arm is still pretty much inoperable from flu shot Wed. (seems the needle must have struck a nerve), and as I was going slower and sort of enjoying it, I remembered hearing a wonderful weaver say his work had become much more satisfying when he decided to let his art "take as long as it took."
