roses, pokeberries, etc.

I didn't intend this to be so elaborate, but it just kept growing and growing. I picked three little roses and then started looking around for something to put them in. The first thing that caught my eye was this little basket, and, probably because I'd just been reading about birds' nests, I decided to use it sort of like a nest--with a pin cup in it to hold the flowers. The color seemed to call for some purplish coleus leaves, then some pokeberries I'd picked for another reason, then a plum that was already on the windowsill, then a walnut (in its husk) that I had picked up in the yard earlier.

P.S. Secrets of the Nest is a wonderful book.
