When we moved to Texas nearly 13 years ago, I just loved all the beautiful wildflowers I saw that first spring. My little boys and I would go for walks and pick flowers. And I pressed them. I even have a microwave press, but I pressed most of them the old fashioned way, in a book. I used two telephone books, and stuffed the pages. One book had mostly flowers; the other one had mostly leaves and greenery. I always thought I would do some project with them, but never did. The phone books have been in a closet that I've cleaned out many times over the years and I just kept putting the phone books back in. But this time, I'm getting rid of the phone books. I'm kind of sad to see the flowers go, because when I see them, I'm reminded of those sweet days spent with my boys. So, I thought it would be nice to photograph a few of them. I think this photo kind of looks like a botanical print. Maybe I'll frame it and I'll be able to see the flowers every day. And that beats having them in a book in the closet.
