You all know how I love my flowers dried just as much as fresh cut.
So I decided to go around my home this week and photograph some of
the dried arrangements I am living with this Winter.
Having these arrangements around helps keep my favorite season with me all year long.
I love gardening, so it's only natural that I would fill the house with everlastings from the past season.
Don't you just love these little vintage bowls I found in a little second hand shop?
Dried flowers have a way of brightening up the space like no other item of decor could.
The interesting thing about these bouquets of everlastings is that I can actually recall
when I picked them fresh.
This little bouquet is inside an old rusty chick feeder.
Here it is dried...
and below is when it was fresh from the garden.
I love shopping around for unique containers to put my bouquets in,
and this one was perfect.
The roses below are my favorite in the garden.
It's the Colette rose.
This is the same bouquet of Colette roses when they were cut fresh this Summer.
My second favorite rose is Guy de Maupassant.
It a beautiful rose in the garden and in the house.
Below is a photo of it freshly cut.
A large bowl of hydrangeas in the kitchen today.
The photo below is when I first brought them in this Fall.
This bouquet below is looking a little tired and will probably be going in the trash soon,
but I have enjoyed it and it has moved all over the house.
It's in the bathroom in this photo.
Here is the pretty bouquet when it was fresh.
This arrangement below is one of the oldest I have in the house.
It's from three Summers ago and here it still sits.
A little dusty, a little faded, but I smile every time I see it.
Yes, I remember the very day I cut this bunch of flowers.
So while the winds blow and the snows come and cover the garden,
I can keep Summer with me here in my own little indoor garden.
It is already the middle of January and days are flying by.
It is hard to believe that in no time at all gardening will start in earnest.
I will be out there with my shears cutting new bouquets for
the house before I know it.
