This is the first and only flower I have bought this year. It's a salvia called "Playin the Blues". I got the last one at Bob's Garden shop.
Jackie sent me a pinterest with a burlap flower. They were easy to make, but messy with sticky gluey fingers. I used two 20 inch strips 4 inches wide and this is what I got. The size of the flower depends on the length and width of the burlap that you decide on. You can make them, lots of instructions on pinterest.
It's dogwood winter, my furnace has come on this morning, chilly and cloudy. I hope the sun is shining where you are.
