Fall bouquets that don't need water

As the days grow colder, you may be looking for a bouquet that will stay fresh throughout the winter season.

According to the CTPost, though many flowers, such as the asters and sugar maples, boast beautiful colors this month, in just a few short weeks most gardens in the cooler regions of the country will be asleep for the season.

However, there are some flowers that don't require much water or maintenance - these varieties can keep your home looking sunny throughout the winter months. Dried blossoms and seed heads can create a unique bouquet that will look warm and inviting on a blustery day.

"It's important to carry a bit of the garden with you through the bleak midwinter," reports the news source.

The news source suggests gathering hydrangeas, sea-oat grass, baptista and rose hips, which will maintain their color even without water. Keeping such a floral arrangement in your home will comfort you as you await the arrival of spring.

Drying flowers is another way to keep a waterless bouquet in your home. GardenGuides.com recommends blue, orange and pink flowers, as they retain the best color when dried.
