Just like everyone else~ I've been busy with end of Summer chores!
Trying to harvest as much Herbs & Flowers as I can. All the mints have been dried and it's time to crush them for potpourri. Here's some Rubeckia~ this dries Great! I like to dry them with the stem facing down into a framed screen. This way they dry opened up and look great in arrangements.
Echinacea can be dried the same way~ or if hung upside down the petals will curl inwards and you don't get as much color
Yarrow is ready to harvest~
Here's some freshly harvested Globe Amaranth~ this really keeps its color!
