Junie's Place: Dried Flowers

Wednesday, May 21, 2008

Dried Flowers

This is what I like to do with my bouquets of roses or flowers, and also herbs from my garden.

I enjoy my flowers in the usual vase until they start to look a little wilty (after a few days) then I trim them off a bit and take off most of the leaves, bind them together with string or wire and hang upside down at my kitchen window. I hang them directly over the curtain rod! I love the way they look and I keep adding to them. I also add herbs in the same way, but directly from the garden to the curtain rod, in the upside down bunches .

The big paper clips work well as hangers. When bent open you have one end to go into the wire or string holding your flower/herb bunches together and the other end of the wire clip fits over the rod!
The herbs add a wonderful scent to your house!

:) As you can see I have been catching up with my photo fun tonight! :)

But it's 'Hay Time' now!

Hi Sally,

Thanks! Happy you like this!

Hope you're having a good morning.

It looks like we might get some rain here and we sure need it!
But I DO hope we all have a beautiful weekend.

Hello dear Junie,

What a wonderful idea to hang roses and herbs upside down like that over your curtain rod...I've never thought of doing that! You're so smart:-)

I'm so glad that you were able to get a new modem...nothing worse than not being online! I panic at the very thought! lol Ooooh I would have loved watching that Johnny Depp movie with you...I LOVE horror movies! hehe I agree, Johnny is very easy on the eyes! Yum! lol

Junie, thank you again for your wonderful support. xoxo

Hi Pea,

I like the way those dried flowers and herbs look - and smell! And you can always just throw them out after awhile, if they get too dried out and uninteresting! :) The herbs are especially nice when you bring them fresh from the garden! These I've had since last year so I will probably replace them soon. Roses and flowers keep some color, too, for a long time- and hold together quite well! :0 It's just a fun thing I like to do.

OHHH1 It would be cool to have someone to watch scary movies with ...lol- and to drool over Johnny Depp with! haha

As for your thanks for the other issue- you're quite welcome!
It's just that I have a very low tolerance for busybodies-and sanctimonious people; and those traits often go together! LOL- So you often get a double whammy of unsolicited advice and criticism from such folks!

Oh, well!

Have a good weekend, Pea!

And to think we've been throwing away all those wilted flowers. I'm sure The Missus will enjoy hearing about this.

Wow-that's a great idea, Mom!

Love you,

:) Roses work especially well dried this way! Just do them before they get too far gone!

...but I like the way the herbs smell!

Have a good weekend!

Thanks so much for visiting!

Yes, it's pretty amazing how the flowers hold together this way!

I just like that natural valance they make at the window.

These are so beautiful Junie...they really do stay that way for a long time, which I love. Gorgeous colors. I've got several bouquets of dried flowers in one of my bedrooms....mostly roses. Are you surprised?

That's a wonderful way to enjoy your flowers for a long, long time.
Great idea!
