We’；ve long been a fan of using the flowers and seed pods of farmer’；s market vegetables and herbs for our flower arrangements. But we hadn’；t thought of dill weed flowers until Terry？Bordenave sent us an email：accent pillow case baby canvas home decor
We subscribe to a new， small CSA in northern Vermont (Deep Earth Farm) and in one of our weekly baskets of produce， Josh &； Isaac included a bunch of dill weed. After stripping off the leaves to use in a meal or twopillow shams floral， I was left with these striking seed heads. They reminded me of fireworks bursting –； I’；m a big fan of them and my husband is a member of the Pyrotechnics Guild of America and puts on amazing displays for our family –； and I wanted to use them at the table somehow. This is what I came up with. I left them in these old medicine bottles for about a month， and they began to dry up and curl a bit. Before I tossed them on our compost pile， I saved some of their seeds for next year’；s garden.
It reminds us of all the great “；weeds”； that can be flowers， with a slight shift of view.

I have mentioned before, our family moved in July, and we have enjoyed getting to know our new community. ?I had the opportunity to partner with Fiskars to make a donation to a school or children’s organization of my choice, and I thought getting to know where the need was in my own community was a great way to jump right in and start being a part of things! ?Fiskars encourages creativity with their products, and also wants creative people in the community to consider giving back and making sure that local kids have what they need to express their creative sides with kids’ scissors and art tools.
