Evidence of Summer
(And yes, sadly, one has to look inside rather than outside for evidence of summer in Seattle these days.) I'm probably breaking all sorts of design rules here, but this little arrangement of things is making me happy right now. I started out with some summery seashells. Added the birdhouse the kid painted at school. Then the one she painted at home. Some spent poppy and primrose (?) stems that I'm drying so that I can plant the seeds. Little vases that hold a rotating series of blooms that the kid picks for me, insists that I pick, etc. (I love how there's no difference between a flower and a weed at her age.) An extra sprig of oregano. A pinecone picked up on a walk.
Feels like a little record of life up there. What's next?
