Dear Neighbor,

If you are like me, you hate throwing lovely flowers away. I found a great use for my faded flowers: nest boxes!

Flower petals and herbs make fragrant additions to nest boxes.  Rosemary, lavender and mint are some easy herbs to make your nest boxes smell pretty.  When using rosemary, make sure to use the needles only. Dry branches become brittle and uncomfortable. You can use honeysuckle but they will surely eat your offerings.

Happy homesteading! Scarlett
