The Art of Pressing Flowers

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be given an old fashioned wooden flower press by my sister-in-law ...

Before we went to Dorset I scoured the fields where we walk the girls and picked a selection of buttercups, daisies, cow parsley, forget-me-nots and other miscellaneous flowers. Look at the 
results !

The buttercups have worked particularly well and retained their glorious colour.

So I now have a little box of pressed flowers to work into pictures and bookmarks ...
