Pressed leaves

I try to¬†be creative in my own way.¬† Often using things that once perhaps would have been made into another art work, by mother.¬† I don’t want¬†her art material¬†to go to waste that she took time to make available.

For I have a huge box of dried flowers and leaves that mother pressed when I was a child.¬† She¬†would go into the garden to pick flowers my father had planted especially for her or go¬†out on her push bike (me on a little seat behind her) and gather up potential items of buttercups, daisies, forget-me-nots, mallow, silverweed leaves, shepherd’s purse…¬†and sometimes just gather up bright coloured autumn leaves before they fell.¬† Nothing poisonous or rare, for mother taught me safety and responsibility, of¬†what NOT to touch or pick for drying and what was fine.¬† As there’s laws prohibiting picking a lot of flowers in the countryside in the UK and she¬†told me why¬†that is a good thing.¬† The decline and extinction of some flowers and the creatures that live only on those flowers need protecting.

Sew, if bud puns give you the hebe-jeebies look away now!¬† For¬†when I’ve made creations from all this lovely box of goodies, I may sell some, but that we will see.¬† Forsythia I’ve only made things for the family.¬† As I will say this once and floral, I make¬†no promises of tomorrow and¬†leaf it at that.¬† It’s against my beleafs to ever guarantree the fuschia or swear¬†(you don’t beleaf that for one minute).¬† I’m just pollen your leg, in the¬†hope thistle cheer you up and you just tell any sadness to begonia.¬† If not my hope is¬†you’ll get clover it.¬† Last bud not least, Beloved, please¬†gardenia your happy and¬†don’t be orchid¬†waiting for someone to bring you flowers, but¬†plant¬†and feel freesia to put [Flowers] on the calendula.
