When I came back from Washington my hydrangea were perfect for picking and drying. I've really been wanting to make wreaths from the blooms. This one was the first wreath made. Having no idea how many hydrangea blossoms were needed I picked oodles. As I began cutting and poking, tying, oh I used those little stick picks with wire to wrap each stem too. Little did I know until digging in that it would take a peck of hydrangea to make a wreath! However, the hydrangea wreath tuned out stunning, don't you think? All of the blooms will dry within a few days. I tied a burlap slip knot for hanging. I'm taking this one to the shop. If you're new to Bittersweet blog and would like to learn more about drying hydrangea, type in hydrangea in the search box on the left side bar. I've touched on the subject many times.
Seriously, I can hardly stand it! I'm holding back like you wouldn't believe. What the heck? I'm not sure how much longer this can go on. The summer shop will soon be laced with autumn hues. Can you tell how anxious I'm feeling about it all? The plum and chocolate soaps, golden yarrow, cranberries, burlap, vanilla bean, oh my!
Enjoy caring and sharing days.
