Yesterday we came back from another visit to the cottage. I left my leaf and flower press up there, hoping I’d finally have a chance to use it. After all, I’ve only had it for eight or nine years. One of those things.
So on one of our many walks, I collected a few leaves. I really must come up with a container for such things; wild raspberries, dragonfly wings, you know. I always bring my camera on our walks, and I’m usually holding someone’s hand.
Anyway, the flower press.
It’s a Microfleur, given to me by a friend who never got around to using it either. It’s about 5×5 inches and couldn’t be easier to use. I pressed 2-4 leaves at a time, for 20-60 seconds in the microwave. That’s it. Next time I will go out in search of some wildflowers. For that I will definitely need something to carry them in.
