Flower Picking

 Emily suggested we go to a local farm that offers flower picking - the kinds that dry well - so we can dry our own for wreath making in November.  This was a first visit to this farm for me.

Rows and rose of statice in varying colors, globe amaranth, straw flowers and others I didn't know names for.

I had my basket weighed empty since the flowers were sold by the pound.  This is just shy of 2 pounds.

I came home with a white pumpkin too.

Emily spied this sign.  It's the same company featured in the large sign in our barn rec room advertising cream separators.

When I got home I put rubber bands on the stalks and hung the flowers to dry in the garden room of the barn.
