Emily Henry, owner of Chickadee Hill Flowers, a floral design studio in Bar Harbor, uses her garden’s seasonal leftovers to make dried arrangements for Valentine’s Day.
From May through October, Henry is busy arranging and delivering fresh flowers, but when the season ends, she uses dried flowers to make gifts for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Valentine’s Day.
“We don’t do anything fresh this time of year because there isn’t anything that we can pull from locally,” she said.
Henry makes mostly dried flower wreaths in November and December, but dried floral arrangements in a ceramic vase are popular around Valentine’s Day.
