dahlias, hydrangea, salvia, comfrey

Don't know which I'm enjoying more--the air coming in the window or the flowers blooming in the garden right now. This jar of dahlias, oak-leaved hydrangea flowers, blue salvia, and comfrey is headed to a friend later today, but, for now, I'm enjoying it myself.

This is one of those cases in which the leftovers were better than the original meal.  I picked some dahlias to give away in a little jelly jar (second photo), but I had one leftover stem that remained in a green vase on the windowsill, where, as luck would have it, there was also a curved garlic stem waiting to be used somehow. They wound up in proximity to each other, and I liked their collision of forms better than the "real" arrangement.
