Time to start pressing.

posieh(3)April 6, 2011

Spring is here......or it is coming. Time to start thinking of pressing your specimens. I was "South" for a short vacation and found some interesting ferny-like roadside weeds. Had my old trusty phone book with me and pressed some leaves to use in pictures, etc. Worked great. The old large city phone books work great, the pages are absorbant. Dandelion's should be showing soon and their small leaves are great for some projects.
