Guara and Gazania Flowers

The sky has that wonderful deep blue hue of October.  Most of the season’s pressing is finished.

The last things I pressed were actually today when I pressed some guara and some gazania.  Here is some information on both of those flowers:

I have used guara quite a bit.

Here is an example:

This design uses guara and the passion flower seen below.

Gazania is the feature flower in my Cancer Survivor’s Poem which is the best seller for QuilliGraphy.

A few days ago, I pulled up my tomato plants and gathered the remaining blossoms to press and did some lobelia from my hanging basket.  I believe that this is IT.  Everything is being put to sleep.

The one thing I still have that is blooming nicely is my passion flower.

It is a difficult flower to press.  One must remove the stamen & pistols and press the flat part.  It does not retain color very well.  But all the delicate tendrils and twirly things are super.  You can see how I used it in my dance design.

That design has a green passion flower.  It also comes in the blue as pictured.

Soon all the leaves will be changing and a panorama of color will be everywhere.  We do have beautiful autumns here in South Eastern Pennsylvania.

Pressing flowers is only one of my passions.  Photography is another and certainly calligraphy is very high on the list.

Creating designs with using calligraphy and pressed flowers is my business and I have learned something daily from creating these beautiful works that celebrate life and beauty.

Til the next time,
