Autumn Bouquets

Standard

20150929Autumn is the best season to make dried flower arrangements, because so many fall flowers dry on the spot, in the garden or in the field: you only have to collect them and insert them into your bouquet. These “self-drying flowers” include hydrangeas, black-eyed Susans, echinaceas, teasels, Chinese lanterns, pearly everlastings, bulrushes, cereals, grasses and many many others.

In addition, you can collect dried leaves, pine cones, branches with berries and even bare branches to complete your bouquet.

Take a tour of your yard or, even more interesting, head out into the countryside to see: the possibilities are almost endless!

Dried flower arrangements will usually last at least two years before losing their color.
