morning light through forsythia, daylily leaves, blanket flower

This is why I love windowsill arranging. From one minute to the next the light coming through the window changes and the arrangement changes with it. I could have watched this "arrangement" all morning. Actually the first photo isn't actually an arrangement--it's just a plastic glass full of flowers and foliage I picked yesterday. And the way you see them is exactly the way they landed in the glass for "holding." When the light struck them this morning, they looked as pretty as anything I could have arranged, though. The materials are forsythia foliage (so colorful right now!), daylily foliage (the two strappy leaves), and one blanket flower. Blanket flower (Gaillardia) is still blooming up a storm outside.

Here's the result of deliberately arranging with the same materials. Still pretty, but quite different.
