Dried flowers


I have been drying hydrangeas from my garden.
Mainly to put down on my mums grave.The rabbits usually eat the fresh flowers so hope they won’t find the dried ones tasty though I was told they’ll eat anything if they’re hungry enough

I love to see the colours slightly fading, Gerardine. Very pretty.

They look lovely, rabbits being rabbits will in my experience devour anything green hope they leave them alone I have to chuckle as on Wednesday I was chasing a large rabbit round this old blokes garden, it somehow got into his garden but I think after spending most of the day with it playing hide and seek with me I chased it through a hole in his fence, well I am assuming so can't be sure but I will know next Wednesday, his garden is a like a paradise garden so hope I’ve got rid of it.

I won’t mind too much if they do eat them,they didn’t cost me anything .
I haven’t dried flowers before so I was pleased with them.
I’m the same I like the faded vintage look.

What a good idea . My friend has problems with the squirrel 🐿 wrecking the fresh flowers he puts on his wife’s grave.
