I took a quick trip to Des Moines yesterday and my first stop was about 20 minutes south of Des Moines at Howell’s Dried Florals and Greenhouse in Cumming, Iowa. Right now is not really peak season for them so it was quiet but there was still plenty to see. They have a great little gift shop with some really cute home & garden decor that is very reasonably priced! Then a short walk upstairs into the dried flower part of the barn is unlike any other place I have been. Beautiful strings of dried flower of every color. Here are some of my images from their dried flower barn.
It was actually fairly dark inside the barn so I had to crank up the ISO on my camera.

It was a great place to go and get your winter garden fix! I definitely plan to head back a few times this year. The owner mentioned that they are also at the Des Moines Farmer’s Market until Labor Day.
In addition to their gift shop and dried flower barn they also have a greenhouse, a tree farm and a pumpkin patch. You can visit Howell’s for every season! I found this description on their website:
