Drying Flowers








I always find beauty in the withering flowers and plants. They are more beautiful to me than the fresh ones. 

Happy Sunday dreamers! :"> I dried these flowers which I got from a relative's wedding. I first sorted, then bundled, then hanged them. And now they are kept in a box. I often use the dried leaves and petals in scrapbooking. But the mini bouquets are just too beautiful to use in scrapbooks and letters that I just use them as displays. :)

Just a friendly note, flower pressing is different from flower drying.
