Summer is over. The sun is setting earlier, and we officially have lost our patio to untimely construction on our rental home. As most of are garden lies wilting in the storage room I made one last effort to harvest the dried flowers and extract the seeds for next spring. Storing them in a plastic baggie seemed unceremonious, so I broke out my new envelope stencils from Flying Tiger and made these gorgeous watercolor seed packets!
