we just passed the winter solstice, a day which rivals christmas here at my house. today, instead of getting dark at 4:15pm, the universe graciously extends our daylight all the way until 4:16 or so. and it only gets better from there.
if i can’t have much sunshine outside, i’ll try to bring a little inside. i have no lack of christmas cheer, mind you, but i’m tired of being inundated with red and white and silver and glitter absolutely everywhere. so when i make something for myself, i invariably end up with something entirely non-seasonal, with unfussy flowers in rainbow sherbet colors.
|miniature carnations, snapdragons, and leucadendron with dried scabiosa pods. on top of my trusty field guide for irony. just try finding any of these growing as wildflowers around here.
