Your copper pots are gorgeous and what a great way to dry your hydrangeas. Love your idea for your birdbath, it is beautiful.

I actually have some blooming this year, so I think I will try and dry some too. Do you just hang them upside down...?
Love your copper pots!

They are pretty hanging with the copper. I got some a couple of weeks ago and tried to dry them, but think they were picked to soon, as they just wilted.
Thanks for stopping by.

Love your copper pots! I hope to plant some hydrangeas this year on the side of the house. They dry beautifully don't they?

Don't you just love that you can dry hydrangeas! Enjoy!

That is beautiful. My neighbours have hydrangea bushes and in autumn the dried flowers are everywhere.;)

The hydrangeas and copper pots look so pretty together. They do make a nice dried flower.
