sea urchin mums

sea urchin mums

these chrysanthemums took not weeks to dry, but months. they were not an accident. i really wanted to dry them, but after a week, and then another, and then forgetting about them for a couple of weeks, only to find them in the basement still┬álimp and pastel colored, i decided that i was in the process of trying to dry a succulent, and i sort of gave up. and then one day, doing laundry, i looked over and saw five straw colored mop heads over on my countertop, and when i turned them over, i thought to myself, “i’ve just made sea urchins out of mums!” and it was all suddenly worth the wait.
