railroad arrangement

I walked across the tracks late yesterday afternoon to pick some honeysuckle before the frost got it. Then a long freight train came, and as I waited, I entertained myself by picking more wild things growing near the crossing. Here they are: wild asparagus, goldenrod, red maple, some maroon leaves I can't identify, ground cherries, and, of course, honeysuckle blossoms (far left).

honeysuckle--two ways

Lots of Japanese honeysuckle blooming along my walk yesterday. I picked a little piece and first dropped it into a tiny glass bottle. Then, today, I moved it to a little orange pitcher. I think maybe I  like it best just in the glass bottle, but it's been fun to play with both ways.

peppers in a packet

Mary Garner-Mitchell created this beautiful little package of peppers at Flower Camp last weekend. The peppers were leftover from an arrangement she'd done with branches of hot peppers and she couldn't seem to throw away the ones that had fallen off. They're wrapped in a catalpa leaf.
