My husband brought home the most beautiful deep yellow/peach hued roses last week for our anniversary. Their fragrance was exquisite, and they looked beautiful in an old cut-glass vase in the center of my dining-room table.
But, alas, the life of a cut flower is short. So today, as I looked at the beautiful wilted petals and drooping roses, I realized they still had a lovely fragrance. I pulled off the petals and put them in a bowl on my table.
I decided to try making a rose potpourri, so I looked for recipes on Internet. Here are several I found.
- How to Make Homemade Potpourri: Two recipes
- How to Make Homemade Potpourri: Don’t Toss Those Flowers!
I’ll let you know how my potpourri turns out. In the meantime, I can still enjoy the color and fragrance of my anniversary gift. That makes me happy. Thanks, Dear.
Happy Anniversary, Missy Jan.
I love yellow roses, too. They make me feel happy.
Meow for now. =^;^=
