I took a much needed walk today and picked up a few choice wildflowers, focusing a lot on the ones I thought were not going to have much longer blooming.

I got…

  • Phlox (Phlox spp)
  • St. John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum)
  • Yarrow (Achillea millefolium)
  • Valerian (Valeriana officinalis)
  • Red Clover (Trifolium pratense)
  • Black-Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirta)
  • Crown Vetch (Coronilla varia)
  • Wild Parsnip (Pastinaca sativa)
  • Bird’s Foot Trefoil (Lotus corniculatus)

Some of this was pressed and some was shelved for capped pendants, pendulums etc.

I’ll probably be back very soon for even more stuff, but I am profoundly out of room for plants at the moment and need to use some up before I can dry any more. Ahh, someone come build me a proper drying room.
