A new project
Unfortunately, I am incapable of doing this with my modest knowledge of flowering plants and shrubs. This year, I have been keenly aware of the progression of flowers since the snow left us and have decided to start a nature journal/calendar.
Each 'chapter' will be a month of the year and will house the flowers that bloom during that month.
Each PAGE will highlight a particular flower or plant.
For each plant I will include:
~a pressed leaf specimen (and for flowering plants-a flower and/or petal)
~The months that it begins and fades
~Location and soil information
~A photograph and/or watercolor
Unfortunately, since I just got this idea, I missed plants like forsythia and BARELY got to the bleeding hearts. I guess I will start my journal with April. :-)
Here is the first pressing.
