The Most Fun I Had All Day

Boona likes to help me collect flowers.

I am in the middle of a house renovation.  It’s exciting but exhausting.

My mind is always going lickety split from one idea or task to the next.  What color should I paint the bedroom?  How much money have we spent?  Did I pick the perfect faucet?

This evening, however, time was suspended.  I wandered around my six acres and just looked and gathered flowers.  I compiled them into a bucket along with stems of foliage and fruit.

I collected native grasses, sunflowers, black eyed Susans, ironweed, beautyberry, mountain mint, devil’s walking stick and Joe Pye weed.

I will assemble these into a wildflower arrangement for our Mississippi Native Plant Society Meeting tomorrow at USM in Hattiesburg.

Stop by and check it out if you’re in the area.
