I often forget to collect the seeds and it's the perfect way to have a "free" garden the next year. I think Poppy heads look brilliant even after the petals have gone.
I can't get enough of the poppy heads!
Wonderful photos, fantastic compositions:) Greetings
what wonderfully delicate pictures filled with soft light. lovely
Oh, I do like this story in pictures :-) I had a flower press when I was little, and (weirdly!), my mum and I were only saying yesterday how it'd be a nice thing to do with my daughter, so I need to hunt around in Mum's loft a bit..!
I keep meaning to put them through the laminator too. My daughter is struggling to be patient waiting to get them out:-) Also there is a microwavable flower press that seems trendy. It speeds things up. I used to just stick them in between piles of books.
Beautiful photographs, and I love the thought of collecting seeds for next year. I also had a flower press when I was younger - loved it! Popping over from How does your garden grow?
love that first photo....the red just pops against the background!!
I've been collecting seed from my aquilegias. I can't wait to have lots more of them next year!
Ive decided to collect seeds this year. Love the flower press, I havent used one for years, might look out for one x
Gorgeous photos I love the poppy pods. I used to flower press as a child and this has brought it all back - must get on for my daughter xx
