new to me
i bought a small bunch of straflowers at the market the other day. i didn’t know what strawflowers were. i thought i was buying zinnias. i’m a pretty good northwo0ds naturalist, but a terrible horticulturist. anyway, i bought the strawflowers mostly to dry. but as you may recall, i am one day away from a deadline on a large art commission. so, at 4:40 pm i found myself looking for today’s STILL subject. strawflowers came into my crosshairs. and this single, unopened, bud came into focus. strawflower,where have you been all my life?
