Two or three weeks ago, when my mum was feeling a bit low,
knowing that she had a couple of flower presses in the cupboard, I decided
to pick a few flowers for us to press.
Some from her garden...
and some from mine.
We spread them on to her lap trays...
before pressing them.
Well, today was the grand opening of the flower presses!
I'd forgotten what fun this can be!
When I was a child, it was a common pastime as we went off
into the woods and meadows in search of flowers.
There wasn't such a thing as a flower press, in my family
at that time but we did possess many books,
including a set of Encyclopaedia Britannica!
So, we'd pile those on top of the flowers... and wait !
So... hard luck if you have a birthday soon ...!! LOL!
