Lifting Winter Dullness — Beauty!

We gathered for some winter celebration—and afterward, settled flowers in spring water to float beautifully. Here where it is cold, it is nice...this time of year...to have a store-bought memory and spark of color in the house.

But the flowers would get tired in the water—and not do well over time. So I dried them (low oven...meaning pilot light on) and later packed them. Dried, these petals and collected greens are lovely in a bowl—and with a sprinkle of Rose Water or flower essence, brings such joy. JOY.
