Today I am pressing Grape Hyacinth, Money Plant, Periwinkle Myrtle, and Creeping Charlie.  These vibrant flowers in fuchsia, sapphire, and purple are the essence of May. The window for collecting and pressing these botanicals is quickly closing due to the unseasonal heat wave we are experiencing in Central Pennsylvania.  I wanted to share a few pics of these gorgeous plant specimens. 

 The art of pressing sharpens our seasonal awareness while making us more attune to the botanical world unfolding daily.

Gather flowers while you may,
