Japanese lanterns

It's been so long since I've posted a windowsill arrangement, I've almost forgotten how! Too busy "putting up" vegetables and drying things like this: Japanese lanterns. I love this simple little "arrangement" of a single, short Japanese lantern stem, but the reality of  my life right now is better depicted in the second photo: a house full of long Japanese lantern stems waiting to be stripped of leaves and hung all over the house to dry. They are hanging from chair backs and floor lamps and doorknobs! All beautiful but a little overwhelming.
