I do have some blooms that I was planning on doing a post on, and just this morning, decided GBBD would be a good place to do it, even though they are dried, and not on plants any more.
I can't remember which kinds of lavenders these are, but these are from November, taken before putting the lavenders in the window well.
In November, when I had the idea to do a post on flowers I dry, there was some dill, that I put away in January, statice, quaking grass, and globe thistle.
The lovely beach photo is on a calendar my husband made for me from our June, 2007 vacation to the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
This is a rack inside our back door, above the steps that lead to the basement. Some of the plants I already named are here, plus Sweet Annie, that I grew in the new bed, but pulled out shortly after cutting these to dry, because I don't think I have enough room for something that gets that big. Maybe if I liked the plant itself better, I wouldn't mind the size of it.
The above pic was taken in November, and the rest of the pics in this post were taken this morning.
This morning glory hanging was my husband's grandmother's. We've had it over 30 years. It's always in bloom.
German statice is one of my favorite flowers to dry.
Here's a home for baby's breath, lavender, statice, gomphrena, nigella seed pods, and knautia, the little red flowers in the middle.
nigella, or love in a mist
I just realized I didn't include my strawflowers, but I'm putting some links in this paragraph. My houseplants are about the same as last posted. There are a few African Violet blooms, but they aren't so happy right now. My signs of spring are currently buried by snow. I'll be spending time this afternoon seeing what blooms others have on this cold February day. Next month, I hope will be a different story.
(Whew! I 've never done the pics this way, and with the larger font I use, it doesn't jive with the pictures, so I had to keep looking at preview, and that wasn't the same, so I was publishing and editing, hence, there was no hurrying, and I look to be #38 on Carol's Mr. Linky.)
Happy GBBD to all, and happy anniversary to Carol!
