Simple Gifts

This is the time of year when i usually buy a bouquet every week or two for the kitchen table. But this year, i'm putting jars of cuttings on the table and finding them to be attractive little nosegays.

One jar of velvety coleus cuttings, one jar of magenta iresina, and another jar of pink begonias. Pretty soon the collection looks like a bouquet. A welcome sight these winter evenings whe
n the sun goes into hiding at 4:15 p.m.

You could say i'm localvoring my own bouquet. My "flowers" weren't flown thousands of miles. They came from 20 feet away, from the houseplants in my solarium.

Simple living. Simple gifts.
