This is the best way to preserve the beauty and fragrance of a beautiful bouquet of fresh roses. Drying them make them great embellishments for cards, confetti for weddings and bridal showers, and potpourri. http://www.ehow.com/how_2293715_dry-rose-petals.html?utm_source=pinterest.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=inline&utm_campaign=fanpage
"The Beautiful Mystery" by Louise Penny. Inspector Gamache Book 8. Set in a cloistered monastery in the remote Quebec wilderness. Plot centers around the development of Gregorian chant and written music. Cool concept. However, all of Penny's other books have drawn interest from Anglo-French relations in Quebec. This one lacked that and some of the interest and humor it provides.
