Oh my.....I can't deny it any longer....Fall is upon us here in Northern/lower Michigan.
Just 14 miles north of here the temperature dropped to 30 degrees last night.
It's time to start cutting the flowers for drying.
A few of the hydrangeas are ready to bring in.
I love loading canning jars with them as they dry for Fall arrangements.
They also look pretty in ironstone pitchers.
The bees were busy as I was cutting the flower heads.
I dry the blooms upright where ever I can find an available spot.
Like on top of the French cup rack.
In sweet little pitchers.
And empty vases.
The bushes are laden with flowers that aren't ready to be cut yet.
I don't think I'm quite ready to cut ALL the flowers off the bushes. I'm hoping to transition over to the Fall season a little at a time.
The cooler temps means the roses will make another appearance before a hard frost. That gives me a few extra for drying for wreaths.
Have a wonderful weekend!!
