Most of my flower arranging is born of necessity
when thinning out heavy plants,
or pruning flopping ones.
These day lilies I brought inside because they were out of sight,
and as their name implies over so quickly.
Moon daisies continue to behave thuggishly in their over-rich soil
and instead of waving decorously in a delicate meadow, crash about
and lean heavily on anything else that struggles to show its face.
Such as this cornflower.
Although admittedly this was more a victim of my clumsiness.
I was weeding, when I simultaneously discovered it and crushed it.
I'm hoping it revives in water.
Ikebana it is not.
