Hydrangea from the other day. I took a bit of it and pressed whatever bunches were small enough for herbarium pendants, and dried the rest for herbal pendants. I should be having some of the latter in the shop very soon.
It’s finally mulberry season, and I couldn’t be happier to see my most beautiful, octopus like tree give so many fruit!! <3 The last three photos were taken “inside” the tree, under its wooden dome… what I like to call my sky of mulberries!! ;w; Oh, how I love you, my dear tree.
