I'm also a huge fan of cut and dried flowers (and also need some more for the potpourri mixes). So here's what I intend to add:
I suspicion I won't be able to leave it at that though. There's a specific area I want to till up and plant to all flowers of this variety so I can always have fresh cut flowers that last and enough pretty petals to add to all my potpourri mixes.
Do you have any favorite flowers or herbs that you grow? Or would like to try? If you suggest something I'd love to try it out.
Two colors of sunflowers with zinnias, African daisies and the odd cosmo.
One of my zinnias.
Two evil plants looking benign and lovely: morning glory and calendula.
