black-eyed Susans, blue salvia, and some "squashkins"

What I like about this arrangement is the directionality of the flowers. Some of the salvia and black-eyed Susan stems were seriously bent when I picked them, and that wound up making them look more interesting in the vase. Here, too, are some "squashkins." As always, a huge squash (or maybe pumpkin or maybe a cross between the two) grew out of the compost heap, and this year's"squashkins" are particularly pretty. They look like smooth, yellow-skinned pumpkins. My only mistake was not to pick them immediately. I had hoped they'd get  bigger, but, instead, they were discovered by animals and now most of them have tooth marks in them.
