Of course I love fresh roses, but it always seems a shame once they've wilted and I try to dry them whenever I can. These are drying on the radiator (suitably covered and with props!)
It's not the recommended way to dry them (I think hanging upside down in a dry, warm and dark place give greater success). However, these were in an arrangement I had been given which I forgot to water. They had already started to crisp up so just needed finishing off.
I was surprised they dried so well, I don't usually have success with paler colours. Drying them is one thing, but then what to do with them. Usually I snap the heads off and put them in a jar "for future use". Not having a jar to hand, I popped them into the paper roll.
I rather like how they look there. The vintage toilet paper is not "for future use"!
