Getting time for some of us to accept the fact that it won't be long before those beautiful flowers in the yard will be gone, gone, gone. One way to keep the memory of those blooms alive is by pressing them when they're at their peak. An old book will work as a press, but this one will do a much better job. Fortunately, the cost minimal.
Kathy has a wealth of info on her site about pressed flowers...it's a good spot to do some exploring.
