For the millions of flower lovers who don't have the luxury of decorating with fresh blooms every week, Cathy Miller's Harvesting, Preserving & Arranging Dried Flowers offers the perfect solution: an inexpensive, expressive way to create warmth and beauty year-round.

Featuring more than fifty floral "recipes." All illustrated with brilliant full-color photographs by Rob Gray, Harvesting, Preserving & Arranging Dried Flowers is the most comprehensive, contemporary, and practical book on the subject. By mixing such popular favorites as carnations and marigolds with more exotic flora like cattails and eucalyptus leaves, and by incorporating a wide range of organic elements--fruits, grasses and weeds, seasonal ornaments, even found objects--Harvesting, Preserving & Arranging Dried Flowers celebrates the full extent of nature's bounty.

Drawing from her twenty-plus years of expertise in the art and craft of drying flowers, using the most up-to-date methods--including microwaving and glycerinization--and aided by an assortment of household products, Cathy Miller shows readers how to create fabulous arrangements that last for years. The preserved roses, delphiniums, peonies, and other blooms that beckon from the pages of Harvesting, Preserving & Arranging Dried Flowers look as if they were just plucked from the soil.
