weeder’s digest: flowers in the attic

by Grace Bonney

My penchant for dead flowers is no secret.

Lately I’ve been working to amass more perfectly parched specimens. I brought home all the leftover valentines day flowers and waited. Two weeks later they are ripe for plucking – I snip them at the quick and set them down as little objets d’art. Flowers in various states of decay sprinkled through the apartment, I fantasize about a day spent with dusty jewels and gin. Velvet sofa’s and too many cats. Charles Aznavour.

I tack a few gems to the wall; a constellation of ranunculus rises in the east!

I’m keeping it short and sweet this week, next week we’ll examine the mystical effects of flowers and plants in the home and some basics of Feng Shui. Get your crystals ready…
