Learning About Yarrow

Gardening is definitely a learn-as-you-go hobby of ours. Lots of research, lots of trial and error and a little luck thrown in too. The Yarrow's been a beautiful ray of sunshine in our garden beds for the last month or so. Now, it's starting to fall over and look a bit tired so off to Google I run to figure out what to do.
:: A little harvesting ::
:: A little leaf stripping and bundling ::
And in a few weeks we'll have nice dried flower heads to use in arrangements or potpourri. Much better than ending up in the clippings pile at the dump like they did last year!
