My brother-in-law sent me flowers for my birthday earlier this month. It was a lovely lush bouquet that smelled so wonderfully those first few days. And, much to my delight, there were lots of varied greenery stems.
Several days after I received the bouquet, a leaf from one of the eucalyptus stems fell onto the counter. I picked up the leaf to throw it away. However, it never made it to the garbage. Once it was in my hand, I felt the leaf, enjoying the feel of it, and, of course, simultaneously wondering if I could use a few of these lovely leaves in a creation.
In the photo, you can see how I utilized this leaf, along with three of its brothers.
