A bright spot


The "flower farmers" who sell their pretty crops 
at my local greenmarket weren't there this
weekend. For a couple of weeks lately, they only had
cabbage roses and great big fragrant bunches of eucalyptus.
And this is Gomphrena globosa, aka globe amaranth, 
one of the last flowers they brought before
they disappeared for the season.
(I'll miss them until they return next spring—most
likely with tulips and daffodils for starters.)
