Gathering the Materials
Inspired by this layering of flowers that I saw in Paris, I got to work as soon as I got home, gathering wheat from the farm* (part of a cover crop mix I planted last fall), columbine from my friend’s farm, and lady’s mantle from my backyard.
*I was happy to see more "agricultural" products in the flower shops in Paris this year: wheat, lavender, and mint, along with big branches from pie cherry trees, were abundant on this trip.
