I was really pleased to be visited by garden writer and photographer Nicola Stocken this week. She spent an afternoon with me potpourri making for an article she is writing. It will take a while for her to process the photos and finish the article, but she sent me one image as a preview. In the photo I am preparing some flowers from my garden to dry. I felt very honored she had time to spend with me as she was visiting David Austin, James Wong and Bob Flowerdew the same week.
During the afternoon, we picked cornflowers, roses, marigolds, geraniums, peonies and geraniums, and laid them out to dry. We made traditional rose potpourri with dried petals, orris root powder and essential oils, and displayed some of my potpourri decorated with whole dried flowers.
