To keep enjoying your garden's flowers, consider drying them - Fairfield Citizen
People often use drying agents or desiccants that include one or more mixtures of sand, activated charcoal, glycerin, gels, borax, sawdust and cornstarch. Others dry plants using dehydrators, and microwave and standard ovens.
Most common, though, is simply hanging the plants upside down by their stems in a dark, dry room. Hanging keeps the stems straight. The warmer the space, the faster the plants dry. Adding a fan helps speed things along.
"Testing with a few flowers and different drying times may be necessary, however," said Cindy Haynes, an associate professor of horticulture with Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. Silica sand, when used for preserving flowers, tends to be better at retaining their natural colors, but no single process works for all plants, Haynes said.
When using this method, the entire flower head is normally submerged or covered in a box of the silica sand or gel.
"This is often used for delicate flowers that don't respond well to air drying or for flowers for crafts that don't need the stems," Haynes said.
Blooms with a low moisture content, pinecones, seed heads, foliage, grains and grasses are the most popular choices for centerpieces or special occasion use (think wintertime weddings or fragrant Valentine nosegays). Combining their different colors, sizes, shapes and textures results in the best displays.

Daniel Johnston has died; Austin singer-songwriter and artist was 58; Cause of death not known - CBS News
Kent State. The tapes he made included "Songs of Pain" and "More Songs of Pain."He moved to Texas in 1983, first living in Houston and then San Marcos. While working at a carnival, he traveled to Austin — at the time the center of underground cool — and decided to stay. He continued to give out his tapes for free and record stores began selling them, which eventually got the attention of MTV's "Cutting Edge."

His songs often contained innocent pleas for love and bore titles such as "Life in Vain," ''True Love Will Find You in the End" and "Walking the Cow."
Johnston's struggles with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia formed the heart of the Oscar-nominated 2005 documentary "The Devil and Daniel Johnston." The documentary's filmmaker, Jeff Feuerzeig, told KEYE Johnston was "the greatest songwriter of my generation."Feuerzeig said he first discovered Johnston in the '80s through underground cassette tapes sent from a P.O. Box in Austin. Through the "hissy" sound of the tape, Feuerzeig said he could tell Johnston was "literally at the level of Bob Dylan or Lou Reed" as a songwriter.Feurezeig said Johnston was "very open" about his mental illness. "Back in the years in the '80s, when it was not a subject people were free to talk about — I think he's broken down a lot of those barriers because a lot of people suffer from this," Feuerzeig said.

Priscilla Heine: Flowers, Food, and Art - East Hampton Star
In an essay on her work, the curator Janet Goleas wrote, “Among dense tangles and strokes of pigment, bare linen and swirls of charcoal, her imagery erupts before you as painterly moments coalesce to create a whole.”
Of a 2014 painting, “Engine Room,” Ms. Heine said, “I think the image was a surprise and incredible discovery as it came about. It still surprises me, and I think that’s how I deal with finding images as an abstract painter now. My work has the same mystery for me, where it comes from and how it forms, and I think that’s part of what keeps me going.”
Another epiphany of sorts took place on a river in Vermont, watching water lilies open. “At different times in my life, when I worked on very psychological paintings, the lily pads became for me potholes of desire or potholes of longing. The lily would be a way into a piece, a road to follow that becomes the possibility for many roads.”
She works on several paintings at the same time. “My paintings are layered; some of them are very layered, and have been worked on for a long time. But what I’m always looking for is simplicity.” Of a painting she’s returned to many times, she said, “I would never have arrived at what it eventually became if I hadn’t just worked and worked and fooled around. Each mark that goes down is only because somehow you’re being led somewhere, and it’s to try and find something.”

On Gardening | Chilean flora can be challenging, but rewarding - Santa Cruz Sentinel
San Marcos Growers). The blossoms are “outrageous,” but the plant sprawls in a way that calls for staking. The older stems can be pruned to improve the plant’s overall form, but because blossoms are produced on the previous season’s growth, pruning should be done only after flowering.
My continuing quest for interesting these plants focuses currently on the Chilean Bellflower (Lapageria rosea), a beautiful flowering vine that is Chile’s national flower. A few nurseries list this plant on their websites, but it’s generally out of stock.
Persistence should produce results.
Adopting a theme of your choice could provide an alternative to the usual spontaneous approach to gardening in favor of the satisfaction of design coherence and the appeal of an ongoing hunt for botanical treasures.
