I was trying to find something to put on my outdoor table without spending any money. Something I already had around the house that I could find a new use for. Annual flowers don't work as I haven't found one yet that my chickens don't love to eat.
While in the garden the other day, I noticed my dill had grown so tall and floppy, and was laying on the ground.
Since it's flower heads are so beautiful, I decided it would
make a beautiful centerpiece for the table.
So, I took three clear canning jars and filled them with cut dill flowers, and what
a simple and elegant centerpiece they made.
Maybe I should have used my aqua canning jars since the clear ones blend in so much with the glass table top, but for now, this will do.
I love the chartreuse color of not only the wrought
iron furniture, but of the dill heads.
Such exquisite beauty.
I didn't have time to set a pretty table since it started to rain, but maybe when I do, I will change to the aqua jars and use my aqua and chartreuse melamine dishes. Until then, I will just enjoy them as they are and smile every time I see them.
