Beautiful By-Products of the Compost Heap

Baby's Breath flowers are growing wild in our yard!

It's mixed right in with the 2-foot dandelions!

You can see the compost heap behind that repurposed fence and bed frame.

Whenever I get a bouquet of flowers, I hang them and let them dry out. Then I snip off the dried flowers and keep those in shoe boxes. I discard the rest of the bouquet (leaves, stems, etc) into the compost heap.  

The wind must have caught the dry seeds at the right time and voila!

Baby's breath growing wild in my backyard -- sometimes I feel like I live in a dream world.

And it's a pretty nice place!
