Maple Wings From My Tree

Maple Wings, Pressed Plant Material From the Acer Family

Colorful Wings From A Maple Tree

Early each spring, my Maple trees wake up from their winter hibernation. As the leaves burst forth from the branches, these wings come in with them only to fall off and die a few days later.

I love these naturally bold, vibrant colors, and shape. This could easily turn into a dragon-fly, fairy, or fantasy flower… I know what I’m doing with my grand-daughter Rosie the next time she spends the weekend with usĀ  <smile>

Pressed Pink Rice Flowers

Pink Rice Flowers, in the Pimelea Family

 

Fresh from the press this week we have pink Rice Flowers. These are easy to press and turned out great. They came out of the press just like the color of the fresh Rice Flowers.

I’m looking forward to getting some fresh white Rice Flowers. I think they’ll keep their nice white color very well.

I really like these.

Pressed Pink Heather

Pressed Deep Pink Heather Fresh From the Press


Fresh from the press, I have a lovely deep pink Heather. Color retention in Heather is excellent, and even the foliage keeps its color, I love it. Heather is one of my staples. It should be yours too!

Heather from the florist also comes in white, and also with great color retention. I’ve had some for years that are still as white as the day they came out of the press.

Pressed Gerberas – This is a Florist Flower

Fresh from the press today, I have these vibrant orange
Gerberas. Gerbera is also commonly known as African Daisy and is a member of the sunflower family, Asteraceae. They are about 4″ across and really add focus.
