jigger of bluets

I carried over a dozen windowsill arrangements with me to an event in Gloucester, Va, yesterday, and I liked lots of them, but none did I like half as much as this little jigger of bluets that Marty Ross brought by to show me. I don't think she intended this to be an arrangement--she was just showing me the little flowers in hopes that I could identify them--but the thin, thin glass jigger that she carried them in made a perfect vase for the flowers, and they've lasted a really long time, because Marty pulled them up with a little clump of roots still attached. Marty let me bring the jigger of bluets home with me and I've been drunk on them ever since!

  1. LOVE this! Just went out and dug up a small clump that is now making my windowsill a happy spot.
