With all the flowers I've been buying this past spring and summer, I've got quite a collection of dried ones. What fabulous props they make - I just added some ribbon around the stems in this bunch to give them a more luxurious look. I have to admit that my collection is taking up a bit of space, so I think I'll need to edit it down soon as they do become fragile. Not all flowers retain a pleasing look when dried, so it's easy to dispose of those. But the roses are special; they always seem to be beautiful, dried or fresh.
