Every May my Rose bush blossoms big, beautiful and fragrant flowers.
Last year I made Homemade Rosewater with my roses.
This year I will dry them for Potpourri.
Make sure to pick your roses when they are dry.
Morning dew can affect the outcome of the dried Rose Petals.
I picked mine at 2:30 in the afternoon.
Gently remove the Rose Petals from the stem.
Your fingers will feel sticky from the Rose essence.
The fragrance from the flowers is intoxicating
Find a cool dry place to lay the petals on some paper.
Check them from time to time perhaps to flip them over.
Once my Lavender is ready to harvest I will be adding some to make a nice relaxing and intoxicating blend.
(Add Rose Essential Oil as needed to boost the natural fragrance)
Happy Rose Harvesting!
