A travel diary in flowers!I'm not sure that this blog has really touched on my obsession with flowers & lately this obsession is reaching fever pitch!
Mister often has to wait for me out walking while I stop to look at the flowers, smell them & more often than not, pick them. Just today I picked a lovely twig of peonies!! And I guess being a florist has always been an attractive career for me if it wasn't my terrible hayfever & further allergy to early mornings.
This coupled with living away from home I thought I might create a different kind of travel diary! A pressed flower diary.
I'm collecting small flowers from different trips, pressing them & adding them to the diary. Hopefully, it will tell a different story to photographic or written diaries.
Flower pressing is pretty easy... just lay the flower between a couple of layers of tissue & plonk under a whole pile of books! In this case, an extensive pile of travel books!
Here are the flowers I have collected so far some have been pressing for a while & some are very new.
Here is a flower that Grandma & I picked on our trip to Yorkshire last year.
These flowers are from a walk in Pluckley where 'Darling buds of May' was filmed. I've since watched the 3 seasons of the show - Perfick!
I'll add more entries as they are collected!
