After the meal was enjoyed and the guests had departed I cleared the table and placed the flowers on the kitchen bench to be enjoyed over the coming week. Well two weeks passed and the flowers were still there they were looking, well a little crunchy really. They had dried in the vase! The stems had gone mouldy so I just snipped the flowers off and now I have my very own potpourri.
These are dahlias, shasta daisies and lavender and they have all dried to perfection. These may make a nice addition to my nature display.
So if you like my dried flowers just be slack like me and stick a vase of them somewhere and forget about them for a few weeks; you never know what might happen :)
