Birds and Flowers

"How to Tell the Birds from the Flowers" - a cute little book from my collection. Over a century old, fully scanned. scans are copyright annepost 2008

 

"A flower is an educated weed."
        ~Luther Burbank~

 

 

 

 


Flower Presses I use most... 

  • 12 x 18 botanical plant presses... by far my favorite.

  • My field press is simply home made from a small spiral bound watercolor sketch pad and rubber bands, I then transfer my specimens into a botanical press at home.

  • Books, with paper liner put in the microwave to start, then transferred to the botanical press to finish.
