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.

If I'm the best Dad, it's only because I have the best daughter.
Gorgeous pics . . . I hope your project turns out so I can have more gorgeous pics of the dried ones. My screen-saver is a wonderful garden of all the beautiful flowers you've nurtured with your camera.
