Ideas about ordinary tasks done with extraordinary love and attention.
For home, garden, soul and everything in between.

The top broke off in the middle of summer. Rudebeckia has brittle stems that often don't support its heady show of flowers. In September the remaining fat stalks were cut and thrust into a large vase for a patio party arrangement.
Urgent Things I get to do today brought me into the yard/garden to tidy up before the rain made it impossible. That's when I noticed the lovely contrast arranged by Nature herself. She used the wind to drive the last few remaining spikes of Rudebeckia into the Beauty Berry. The berries are not yet fully colored and usually miss being mixed with flowers in any arrangement. But Nature knows best.
