Over the past weeks I have been cutting the very last of the fall blooming roses, and various herbs to to dry for the winter months. I thought it would be nice to make bouquets to hang on different doors throughout the house. They will be a nice addition to the holiday decorations and add a lovely scent as I have included lavender, rosemary and sage along with the roses. This one is on the door going into the master bedroom.
At one time I dried many kinds of flowers and herbs and then for some reason stopped doing it...
...now this year I have returned to making potpourri, and now these bouquets.
Next spring and summer I plan on planting more things that will be suitable for drying. But for now...
I think these will add to the festive atmosphere of the holiday season and will be in keeping with the more 'natural' I decorations I am planning for this year.
I hope that you are having a good weekend, I am sure that many of you like me are starting their Holiday decorations...isn't if fun!
Thank you for visiting.
