“Those flowers may have looked good when you first received them, but despite your best efforts, you can’t keep them fresh forever. If you really want to preserve your blooms, you need to remove their moisture with a process like air-drying, pressing, or nuking them in the microwave. (You can also try dipping them in wax, but that method is harder to pull off.)
“There are many quirky and unconventional techniques out there,” Alfred Palomares, vice president of merchandising at floral retailer 1-800-Flowers, told Popular Science in an email. “All these ways have the potential to produce beautiful and consistent results.” While you can try any preservation method, each one does have its own pros and cons.”

Dried flowers are reminder of just how quickly the beauty of one’s life fades away. [quote_box color=”#b5b5b5″]A voice says, “Cry out.” And I said, “What shall I cry?” “All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field. The grass withers and the flowers fall, because the breath of the Lord blows on them. Surely the people are grass. The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God stands forever.”
Let all who know the Living God cry out that the days of a man’s life are short.
His, or her, loves, hates, likes, pains and self-willed aspirations are fading as they are lived out.[footnote] Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground. (Psalm 143:10) [/footnote] One should not use a Stephen King book to press flowers as such darkness should never approach such light.[footnote] Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? (2 Corinthians 6:14) [/footnote]
