Buddy and I got caught in a shower on our morning walk, which was cut short as we stood under a roadside tree as we waited for a break in the rain. It is a quiet, wet morning, the gentle rain refreshing and pleasant.
Joan asked me to pick some flowers for a table bouquet yesterday, and I collected roadside blooms from down the street and added a few purple coneflowers from the garden to the mix and she had the makings of a fine summer flower arrangement. Tansy, wild oregano, wild asparagus and purple coneflower, and viola:
Summer in a vase.
