henbit, resurrected

There's a funny story behind this. On my way to lunch with Mary Garner-Mitchell and Wendy Northup on Monday, I spotted a big clump of almost-dead henbit on the Ashland sidewalk. It had obviously been recently weeded from one of the beds near the Ironhorse. I picked it up and took it with me to try to rescusitate it in a glass of water during lunch. No luck, it still looked pretty dead when it was time to leave, but I wrapped it in a napkin and took it home where I put it in WARM water. Tuesday morning, it looked fresh as a daisy, and today I used it in this arrangement. Mary and Wendy will testify to the fact that this was, indeed, a resurrection!
