journaling with pressed flowers
My daughter got me a book called "Artful Blogging" put out by Sumerset Studios. It speaks of blogging as a form of journaling, keeping in touch with self as well as others. When I'm taking walks at the cabin, I collect plant material to keep track of what is blooming on any given weekend. So, looking back thru my hard copy journal I took pictures of the pressed plant material. You can't read the journal writings when they are turned into a mandala, but they create interesting background. Above is the flowering body for horsetail, and a stem of the green horsetail. The moist area where the horsetail grows was near the grouse nest, I found a grouse feather and added to the journal page dated 6-4-07.
