I have the best Dad. He knows how much I love flowers. This week (just for no reason-see, he is the best Dad) he sent me these flowers.
He also sent me a link to an article about how to dry flowers at home. Most of you know that I can kill any plant (even the ones people give you and say “oh this one is so hardy even you can’t kill it”) but I figure maybe that talent will come in handy for this project.
Speaking of projects…you know I can’t have flowers and not take pictures. My kids run in terror when they see the camera but flowers can’t do that. They sit there patiently while I take 20 shots of each flower from every angle only to decide that none of those shots are any good. I decided to use this opportunity to take before and after pictures of my flowers. I thought it would be fun to compare them later. When the winds turn cold and everything green in North Dakota is buried under a foot of new fallen snow, I will be enjoying my summer flowers…and I will photograph them once again.
