From Just Little Seeds

This arrangement just sort of "happened".  I had gathered a few less flowers thinking I would just do a couple simple vases and get on with something else. 

I don't recall what the something else was now.

But, there the cockscomb were so very gracefully cascading out of the pitcher I had gathered them in and I thought, I think I need to do something more with them.

I pulled out this pedastal vase so there would be room to drape.

There was a phrase in my head that came from a podcast of Kim Klassen's that went something like this "you already have what you need".  When I thought I needed just a couple more wine colored cockscombs and didn't want to take the time to run back out to the garden, I glanced over at a bouquet that was beginning to fade and there was just what I needed all still very fresh. Hmmm, yes, I already had what I needed. 

Cockscomb, Teddy Bear Zinnia, a variegated Cosmos, and Hyacinth Bean Vine.

All grown from little seeds.  

As I sat in gratitude of what God grows and gives us, I thought maybe I'd want to photograph this bouquet.


  1. That's just perfect - the colors!! God planted the seeds in your heart and soul, and so it came to be. That's really magnificent, Jill!

  2. What a gorgeous, moody bouquet! I haven't grown cockscomb in so long--I'll have to try that next year.


Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit!
