Biophilic Design Flowers

Off the hook: drying sedums

I have some beautiful sedums in my garden and it turns out that they dry well. So I hung them upside down in the the tiny corridor between the kitchen and the bathroom. The boiler is there so it’s the perfect room for drying them.

I am happy to buy flowers occasionally but at the moment I may as well take advantage for the last of the colour plus it’s free.

It’s simple to do, you hang them upside down to keep the stalks straight and I have cut off the lower leaves as these will be in the vases. The colour is beautiful they are pinky red.

I am really starting to collect a lot of dried herbs, flowers, twigs and seed pods. A nice biophilic nod to the outside. A greener way to introducenature into your home without a carbon foot print.

These still need a bit more time to thoroughly dry out. I currently have some fresh ones in my sitting room which add colour without any sent. It wouldn’t surprise me if they take root. We will have to see.

About DP

Hi, I am Dana. I am dyspraxic trying to function and get organised in my dysfunctional world. I don’t shy away from technology but I do have a preference for all things paper and analog. I am trying to organise our lives through my bullet journal, travel around the globe and save money!!! Impossible I know. I have a hard time believing that you should spend a fortune on one day. So, with my creative skills and frugality I will hopefully create my dream wedding without getting into debt. My bullet journal has been a life saver, so much that I now have 3. One for life, one for wedding planning and my last for this blog. I am lost without them. I have a wonderful partner, two fur babies ( Manhattan and Frank) a full time job that I love and my love of blogging. Please bear with me with my spelling and grammar I do proof read about 4 times but I still miss things. I won’t be offended if you correct me. So that’s me, I draw and teach art to both kids and adults and I believe anyone can create anything you just have to practice. I have had to try and try at organising, that is why I am the Dysfunctional Planner.
