white petunias--pulled up by accident

This little arrangement has an interesting history. I was picking flowers today (dozens of buckets of them) for an upcoming workshop, and I was trying to weed as I cut. Not a good idea, in general. I was pulling some spent celosia out from among snapdragon plants, when I inadvertently also pulled up a self-seeded petunia plant that I'd been enjoying all summer. My groan was deep. There was no use replanting it; I didn't have time to water it in and it probably wouldn't have succeeded anyway. But I was happy to have a way to celebrate its life in this windowsill arrangement.

I had to prop a black tray up in the windowsill to make the white petunia show up.
