spent the remainder of my weekend convalescing and watching the first season of that great soap opera downton abbey. might have to buy seasons two and three although it goes against what i'll spend money on. not going to lie, i got into it.
i also made an arrangement for my dining table. had a bunch of leftovers and decided to challenge myself by fashioning something using as many of flowers as possible. peonies, dahlias, lysimachia, bush ivy, russian olive, mountain mint, salvia, dusty miller, grevillea, ranunculus, scabiosa, jasmine, queen anne's lace, astrantia, geranium, astilbe, pittosporum...a lot going on.
and in case, you don't believe me about wilting flowers, see exhibit a above taken this morning. bloody heat.
