Art Imitates Life

On today’s episode of Early Morning On The Deck

I was outside deadheading the marigolds and clipping off the flowers from the basil plants when I noticed for the first time that the tall flower heads had a beautiful base on them that was neither leaf nor flower. Hard to imagine that I didn’t notice this before. As soon as I saw it, I thought that the designer of Stem #6016 on vintage Fostoria glassware must have been inspired by this.


I really enjoy looking at that area where the stem meets the bowl whenever I use one of these old glasses but I always assumed that I was looking at a flower not another botanical feature. Am I the only one that didn’t know this?

  1. Well cut off my legs and call me Shorty if you don’t make the most uninteresting things very interesting. This is how I know you have “Teh Smarts”.
