Pressed Purple Hydrangea

Pressed Purple Hydrangea Flower

This is from a nice white Hydrangea from the florist that has been dyed purple using a floral absorption dye.

Fresh out of the press. Purple Hydrangeas colored with a floral absorption dye. Hydrangea from a florist has flowers that are generally larger than a garden hydrangea. Some of the blossoms can be as large as a pansy!

These are fun to work with. Pressed Hydrangea flowers are available at Preserved Gardens

  1. hello!,I like your writing very a lot! proportion we communicate more about your post on AOL? I require a specialist in this area to resolve my problem. Maybe that is you! Looking forward to look you.


  2. Thanks so much for your kind words. I had forgotten to write up a tutorial on vacuum sealing pictures, so thank you for the reminder!
    So sorry to hear of your struggle with Parkinson’s, I know it’s an insidious disease and I truly feel for you.

    My injury was years ago, and although it was a hellish nightmare for the first several years, I really can’t complain about it. Unlike Parkinson’s, persons with TBI can and do get better with the passage of time.

    I spent my time “in the fog” trying to learn; constantly trying despite repeated failure. But, as time went on and recovery took place, I was blessed with the unexpected gift of memory coming back! Everything I tried so hard to learn but couldn’t had been stuck inside my head; not lost at all. As the “fog” lifted, those memories came flooding back to me. My failures became success with no effort at all, so I’m actually better now than I would have been if not for the accident. Crazy, right? God has a plan, we just need to trust in Him.

    Throughout my recovery, I was obsessively pressing flowers and trying new things. I experimented in ways I never would have tried if I had been thinking “normally” and have learned so much! I’m just bursting with excitement to get it all down on paper to share with my fellow flower pressers!

    As soon as I can get a day to go through the process and take lots of pictures, I will share my method of vacuum sealing pictures. I’ll post a quick note on the blog with a link to detailed instructions on my website. Thank you for the reminder. 🙂


  3. Anne, you’ve created an excellent website with much valuable information. At one place on your webstite, you said you had a method of vacuum sealing pictures that cost only about $60. Can you give details? (On another note, I was sorry to read about your traumatic brain injury. I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease two years ago, and I will tell you that it has led me on an incredibly fulfilling journey of deeply opening my heart to God. That same journey is available to you and everyone else, althought you may have already taken it.)
