Philadelphia Flower Show 2019 - Pressed Plants

 
Today I bring you flat flowers from the 2019 Philadelphia Flower Show. There were so many entries in the two categories that I only took pictures of a very few that I liked best. Most of my favorites also won ribbons.

The first group is "A Long and Winding Road." The picture is supposed to include a pathway or road, leading to woods, pond, house, or horizon, dotted with plants along the way.

Keep in mind as you look at these that every single bit of the picture is made of pressed plant material. There is no painted background or other art media.

The second group was called "Groovy Garden, an imaginative framed piece" There were fewer of these I liked, or maybe I couldn't get close enough to really look. There were a lot of people mobbing the area at the time.

Tomorrow, I think I'll switch to just some bright colors instead of one of the contests.

In other news: I finally finished writing the chapter called "Screaming Monkeys." I feel good about that but there's still a long way to go. I did another 5-mile walk and picked up a basket full of winter pop/beer cans. Have seen robins and bluebirds, and heard sandhill cranes. I'm nearly done with the book I need to read. Have to finish that one and one more in time to write my column before next Monday. Still didn't clean anything up, but at least I'm not making the mess worse.
