Collected in October, these dried hydrangea (H. paniculata) look as fresh as the day I picked them. Arrange and forget, what can be easier? Eventually, they will lose their color and fade once humidity returns in late spring and early summer.
Meanwhile, in a pretty grape-motif pitcher, they dress up the coffee table, next to a brass vase of cuttings of snake plant (Sansevieria hyacinthoides) and a worn-smooth, quartz ‘worry stone’ picked out of the stream.
Dried pink roses, bits of orange peel, pine cones, balsam fir and bracken fern create a potpourri in a lacy, heirloom Dresden bowl that belonged to my late mother-in-law. The cloth runner was woven by my sister.
