lilac and marigolds--huh??!!

Lilacs blooming in October? With the marigolds? Weird. I guess I've seen a lilac throw a bloom or two in the fall but never have a shrub covered with blooms--like the one we now have in blooming in Buckingham. Talk about a strange combination of fragrances: marigold pungency + lilac sweetness = olfactory overload!

marigolds instead of a nap

Just back from a really fun trip to D.C. for a nature journaling workshop, but when I got home I was tired with little time to recoup before needing to go out again. How to rejuvenate myself? Decided to do a windowsill arrangement and it worked perfectly. I feel centered again and can now dance on!

hyacinth bean, globe amaranth, etc.

Somewhere between the colors in these two photos are the correct colors of these flowers: hyacinth bean, Tatarian aster, and globe amaranth. The color I like best in this conglomeration shows up pretty well in both photos. It's the reddish purple of the hardy begonia and kale leaves.
