flocked, frosted or hairy?

I am playing today with the left overs from my workshop from last weekend. This dried dusty miller is a common, but new-to-me, foliage. I tend to stick with my trailside finds, and this is more common as a full-sun landscape planting (originally native to coastal southern Italy). I like how the hairy silver-gray leaves make it look as though this is a winter wreath with a fresh coating of frost. I consider it seasonal in spirit.

    I see a frosted, seasonal delight! Always love your round compositions. The circular format seems to organize most anything natural into a work of art.
    Will you be reporting on your workshop in your next newsletter? It would be fun to see pics and commentary. A foraging walk and workshop would be a cool event!?
