A thing of beauty is a JOY forever
John Keats

It's about time to dry some of the loveliest in your garden.
I already have some Lathyrus and Forget me Nots
in my flower press
a phone book will do too
Will show you the results in a couple of weeks

Happy Thoughts!! xx

  1. Good Morning Sweet Saskia...
    Your flowers are absolutely beautiful. The poppies are the most gorgeous I have seen. Oh how I would love some seeds. The color is so delicate that they almost appear as if they are made of paper. Just beautiful.

    The first picture with the child peeking out is so gorgeous. She looks so tiny lost in all these beautiful flowers. You take such great pictures.

    Thank you for sharing today.

    Country hugs sweetie...Sherry
