All-Natural Summer Centerpiece

We sometimes walk down the road a bit after dinner. It’s quiet. We’re full of both food and gratitude for the day, for life, for the beauty and peace of where we live.

It’s a great time for reflection. For noticing.

Our rural road is mostly wooded – dotted with here and there houses. There’s a swamp filled with cat ‘o nines in the fall and pussy willows in the spring. Some scatterings of wildflowers like Queen Anne’s Lace, Black-Eyed Susans, and sea roses.

And, I noticed, many different explosions of grasses by the roadside.

Some grasses reminded me of fireworks.

The colors. The grace.

The delicacy.

So I started collecting … images and grasses.

Found a battered, old pitcher … and borrowed a bit of beauty for our home.
