Saved Citrus

Old lemons sit on my counter under the dried lemon slices that were strung together and tied to the overhead cabinet to dry. The breeze spins them around imparting what little fragrance remains into the air.

Here is a bowl of orange peel and it collects the rind from recently peeled oranges that were cut into strips to dry. The oranges smell wonderful and other things can be added to the bowl as potpourri. The rosemary is in bloom so I will bring some in later this morning. I have envisioned tiny wreaths of flowering rosemary. A tiny wreath would sit nicely on the edge of the bowl for the fragrances to mingle.
Thanks for visiting! To all of my gardening friends, carry on and hurry back!
