As Tony and I were out walking tonight, I decided to pick a fuzzy weed to twiddle in my fingers as I walked. Instead of one stem, I got two. As I was observing them, it occurred to me that they were really cool looking, and would look interesting in a vase. That was the inspiration for today's Thing. Today I picked weeds and arranged them in a bouquet.
Once I started looking, there were materials everywhere. My selection was mostly grasses, but I added color with a trumpet flower, a daisy, Queen Anne's Lace, and some purple clover flowers. Each of the plants had its own unique texture.
Tony managed not to laugh at me as I zig-zagged back and forth picking things that looked interesting; as a matter of fact, he started helping me look for things, and he even ventured into a particularly weedy section of common ground to pick the daisy for me!
I came home and arranged my finds in a small vase . The grasses gave the arrangement vertical height and an airy feeling. I set the vase on the island in the kitchen, and it really classed it up!
