They are out!



Out of the sand and looking great

Three days ago, I placed a few hollyhock blossoms into dry sand



  You only need a few dried flowers to enhance a potpourri

Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend, my dear blogging friends.

  5. Hi Karena, This is the perfect time to dry flowers in sand, while the weather is sunny and warm. Only dry the flower heads. Zinnias also work well but daisies and daisy-like flowers come out with petals undone. Try roses,those that are not too open.
    Good Luck,
    Gina

  6. Dear Lala, We don't see Paris until October. We are going to Marrakech first.
    It would be so lovely if we could meet. I'm getting very interested in seeing Spain and Portugal again. Maybe then ......

    Have a wonderful trip and please take some of your fabulous photographs.

  8. Dear Theresa, Dried hollyhocks are beautiful in holiday wreaths and garlands. They provide an unexpected splash of color.
    I purchased the French bulb planter many years ago....on one of those lucky days.
