Red roses always remind me of our engagement holiday from last year - we visited National Trust's Nunnington Hall on the way home and the garden was on fire with the scarlet blooms. We're still saving rose petal from our own flowers to dry and use as confetti for our wedding next year; I've just been leaving them to dry on the table in this intense heat, but do any of you have any recommendations for the best way to dry them?
I always go for the highly scented variety when selecting roses to plant - I find that simply walking past them (particularly late evening after a hot day) is enough to smell their gloriousness, and really there are so many beautiful scented roses, why would you go for anything other?
