Art by Gravity

Just in from the yard, flower heads bent down
Two days later, each stem is artfully and elegantly shaped 

You've seen it here before.  Gravity and flowers, the pull down makes the flowers face up.  Gravity has  such an artful way, twirling and swirling the stems with elegance a human hand knows nothing of.

This year slender branches of the Rudbeckia seem to break off at the central stalk.  Just enough connection remains to keep the flowers alive. Gathering these for house flowers is part of my Things I get to do today. Arranging them over the next few days is what Nature gets to do today.
