Drying Sunflower Heads
I love these huge Sunflower Heads~and the sweet gold finches that flock to them this time of year. I don't think the birds will mind if I cut a few in various sizes and just place them in a big wooden bowl to enjoy on my kitchen table. So many lovely things to gather in an early autumn garden. Roses leaving their rose hips to gather and place in a country crock with some bittersweet, the hydrangeas drying in all sorts of lovely greens and shades of burgundy. I have already begun to gather huge bunches to dry. Soon they will be spritzed with gold and bit of fairy dust for Christmas arrangements and wreaths for my store~ I love it!
