I pretty much tried drying everything I grew this summer and unsurprisingly, it was generally the most popular dried flower varieties that did best. Statice, strawflowers and roses, as well as ammobium and a few other everlastings were the easiest. It may have been due to the weather, but I struggled to get my hydrangeas to look as good as they did the previous year.
Other things that I sampled were zinnias, cornflowers, calendula and dahlias. The cornflowers I found tended to be too delicate and fall apart eventually despite picking them at what I'd read was the right stage. Have any of you had better results? Needless to say, I have about 12 litres of dried cornflower petals in storage now! I had similar results with calendula, but dahlias seemed to do quite well so long as they were picked when their heads were quite sturdy on the stems. The smaller varieties did better too, but the larger ones also worked. Dahlias are one of those varieties that tend to reabsorb moisture, so don't last as well as the likes of good old statice. Have you successfully dried any other varieties?
I'm going to be making dried flower spring wreaths out of what I've got, though storage is a bit of an issue. The loft was wonderful in the summer, but it's not properly insulated and some things have reabsorbed moisture somewhat as it's become cold up there. I have got a few airing cupboards crammed with stuff, but we're expecting our first child at the end of April and the whole storage situation is going to become even more interesting! This is another reason why I've wanted to simplify things next year by focusing on a handful of varieties so it doesn't all become too much. How have some of you found combining motherhood with flower growing? Do you have any advice you could offer a slightly nervous mum-to-be? @folkloreflowers_#britishflowers#flowersfromthefarm#driedflowers#floralinspo#floralinspiration#underthefloralspell#inspirewithblooms#inspiredbyblooms#grownnotflown#wiltshireflowers#dryflowers#floralfix#statice#strawflowers#driedroses

When doing quotes for next year, I’ll go through past photos to see what I’ve done to remind myself of the flowers available. I also forget that I have pictures like this on my phone....With the “seriously untrue/ fake news “ about climate changes, ( and please I hope you get the sarcasm in that ) we have been able to see product come and go, stick around longer then normal, not be there one year when it was there the year before or not even getting the chance to have it cause Mother Nature decides something else. This industry is beautiful, stressful, fun, depleting, exciting, draining, fulfilling and addicting. I love learning more about what’s local and available and I can’t even wait for next season because of the cut flower garden I will have! We also have some really cool things happening in the new year with @vitagardens so I might have some cut flowers available before spring hits! #staytuned
Cherish the little moments this holiday season. 🎁 Wrap gifts with extra care, ☕ savor marshmallow hot chocolate next to the fire, 🎄get cozy with a loved one under fur blankets... It's all those moments of joy that make this time of year so special. ❤️
About to bundle up and head to the @nyc_flowermarket - which is one of my favorite things - and even that is getting increasingly more difficult as the days get colder and shorter. Anyone else struggle a bit this time of year? What are some things that help you adjust?

Heyhey 🌟 „Big Roses“ in S/M/L 🌹🌹🌹 sie eignen sich perfekt dafür, große Flächen damit zu schmücken bzw um Bouquets aufzufüllen und Volumen zu gewinnen. Aber auch als Bündel in einer großen Vase machen sie ganz schön was her 💥❤️ Entworfen hab ich sie damals für die Hochzeitsauslage für Demel @demel_wien , vielleicht könnt ihr euch noch daran erinnern? Damals war Jakob noch bei mir im Bauch und ich hab mich grad ganz genau an dieses Gefühl, die Zeit, meine Gedanken und meine Gefühle erinnern können 💖 vieles davon hat sich verändert und vieles ist so ganz anders, als ich mir es vorgestellt hab. Und das ist auch gar nicht schlimm. Auch wenn ich dachte es wäre leichter mit zweien, dass ich weiter arbeiten werde können, aus der anfänglichen tollen Herausforderung irgendwann Überforderung wurde. So schön ist es auch, dass ich meinen Bub noch viel mehr mag, als ich mir das je vorstellen konnte. Manchmal hatte ich Angst, dass ich nicht noch jemanden so lieb haben kann wie mein Mädchen. Aber vom ersten Moment an war da diese unglaubliche Liebe 💖 und die hat sich einfach nur verdoppelt. Ich mag jeden auf eigene Art und Weise. Niemanden mehr und niemanden weniger. Und wenn ich nun endlich meinen Blumenbabys auch wieder mehr Zeit widmen kann, bin ich eine superhappy Jule 🌸🤗💖 (Werbung/Namensnennung/unaufgefordert) #julesblumen#paperflowers#paperflorist#madetoorder#bloooms#instablooms#underthefloralspell#madetocreate#handmade#marthaweddings#weddingflowers#weddinginspo#pursuepretty#thehappynow#paperartist#botanicalart#whimsicalflowers#kleinerfeinerfeed#supportsmall
Three teddies in a row.
The littlest one was given to @sean_bagary by my auntie Mai, who’s since passed away. He’s Sean’s favourite. The other two were our presents to him when he turned 1 . .
Now he’s at Uni, these three faithful teddies have been keeping his room cosy, greeting me every time I walk past. .
He comes home this Saturday. Wonder how Gemma 🐶will react...
What are you looking forward to this Christmastime?
