Flower Press

During breaks in the snow and rain, I wandered around in the woods, looking for new flowers and other things of interest. The meadow is a vivid green with white, purple, and yellow flowers. They seem to be the colors of our mountain. Have you ever wondered why there aren't very many pink flowers in the spring woods? The wild roses and Indian paintbrush bloom in early summer and will give a splash of pink then. I picked several types of wild flowers and brought them inside so I could press them.


  1. I have wondered about the summer colorway in God's garden too. There are pastels in the spring, but but few after that.

    What do you plan to do with all your pressed flowers?

  2. Right now on the prairie, we are mostly yellow and purple. The purple is locoweed. In my yard I have purple too -- iris, catnip, dame's rocket, violets.
