A Vase on Monday

Cathy over at Rambling In the Garden has a meme each Monday regarding filling a vase with something from your garden. I sometimes try to fill a vase but I always follow along because the participants are so enthusiastic about their vases. 
Thinking about this brought me to the realization that There probably won't be much flower-wise to put into a vase from now until spring.
All of this brings me to my contribution to this meme this week.
Not only is this not a vase but there are no flowers in it. I can't help myself. I had this big bunch of Northern Sea Oats seed stems that I cut down so my entire garden doesn't turn to sea oats. I just love the way they rustle and the way they look so I stuffed them into a torso sculpture that I have. I am sure the artist that made this sculpture didn't intend her to be a vase but isn't that kind of like what happens to we women?? We don't always end up doing in life what we originally think we will be doing. It all works out.
Happy Vase on Monday to you all.

  7. Looks great! I do love the look of Sea Oats in the garden, but have been hesitant to plant some--I'm already drowning in a few other exuberant plants:)
