misshapen tomato, coneflower castoffs

This is one of many misshapen tomatoes I'm getting this year. They're not much good for slicing, but they are interesting to look at, and you can cut delicious wedges from them. The flowers are coneflower castoffs--the result of deep deheading I did today in the cutting garden. These little coneflowers came off with some larger spent flowers. There's a sprig of scented geranium foliage in this, too.

As I was photographing this, I spotted, out of the corner of my eye, my clippers on the kitchen counter. I thought my arrangement might benefit from the unexpected drama of that "mechanical red," so I added my clippers to the mix.
