6 - Another way for the drying of Rose-leaves. Dry them in the heat of a hote sunny day upon a Leads, turning them vy and downe till they be dry (as they do hay): then put them up into glasses wel stopt and luted, keeping your glasses in warme places; and thus you may keep all flowers: but herbs, after they are dried in this manner, are best kept in paper-bags, placing the bags in close cupboards.
