Daily Photo 20190128: Dried rose

I've purposely been drying some roses, but I did it all wrong. I just left them in the vase over time, and the flowers all slumped over, doing a huge U-turn at the top of the stem, and ended up facing downward.

I should have removed them from the vase when they were still viable, and hung them upside-down.

These flowers look all squished together and face the wrong way. I tried de-squishing the centers, but that wasn't successful, either.

I ended up photographing an individual rose "face" using my cellphone, then tweaked it in Snapseed, and this is as good as I could get.

Lesson learned. I shall get more roses and do things "right" next time. Heavy sigh.
