I am a gardener, gatherer, buyer, and collector of both sober and showy plants. From flowers, to the over-looked, to the showy autumn leaves, and anything in between.
My priority in life is spending time with family, most importantly my husband Dave and our grandchildren. We love exploring parks together, hanging with the grandkids, and our 2 Siberian Huskies, "Ike" and "Max" among other things.
I've loved flowers since I was a very little girl, learning to press flowers first from my Grandma. Now I have the joy of pressing flowers with my own granddaughter.
I've worked with different techniques of preserving flowers over the years, including air drying, silica, microwave, glycerin, freeze drying, pressing, and a proprietary preservation technique I developed by years of play mad scientist. I founded Preserved Gardens in late 1991 when I started freeze-drying flowers and foliage. I always have more ideas than time and never stop learning and experimenting.
The purpose of this website is to share information I've accumulated regarding floral preservation over the years. The emphasis of this site is on education in the area of pressed floral arts along with a little about other methods of floral preservation.
Who would have thought it possible that a tiny little flower could preoccupy a person so completely that there simply wasn't room for any other thought. - Sophie Scholl
