I went raspberry picking again on Sunday, and not only did I come home with a box full of berries, I picked some type of pretty, green, fuzzy weed/grass that was growing along the edge of the raspberry field. They might have been weeds when they were in the field, but when I brought them home and put them into a glass bottle, they looked so pretty on the dining room table!
You might remember that a few weeks ago I showed you the wheat centerpiece I placed to start the tables transition into fall. Well, our kitty Mango is allergic to grass, and that apparently extends to wheat. So the wheat centerpiece was out due to a skin reaction she had :-/ Just to be safe, the fuzzy weeds centerpiece stayed long enough for me to get a picture and imagine looking at this fuzzy centerpiece all the time before being relegated to the balcony table centerpiece. It's not quite the same, but I can still see it as I walk past our sliding glass door, and it's worth it to keep our favorite member of the family healthy and happy.
With that said, look for centerpiece number 3 soon, hopefully one that is not kitty-allergy inducing!
