jeremy likes to pick me flowers on the way home from work. this is delightful for myriad reasons but my two favourites are that i like to picture him picking them, and that i like to consult my wildflower guide to determine their variety.

bittersweet nightshade is a vine that grows quite rampant around these parts. it can be identified by its small green berries and yellow dangling bits in the centre of the flowers. also known as deadly nightshade, it was used in olden days to protect from witchcraft.

now, it protects the sunroom table from a wistfulness for the outdoors.
