Pretty Plucked Pressed Pink Primrose Petals

Last Spring I wanted the wild primroses to last forever. Knowing that was not the way of things I picked one and pressed it between the pages of a watercolor sketchbook. I came across it yesterday and wanted to share it. The petals were so transparent you could see through them to the stem beneath. You can even see the tiny delicate hairlike texture of the stems.

It was so wonderful to experience its joy once again, especially when I least expected to.

It made me smile and think of meadows in the mountains. I closed my eyes and I imagined I actually caught a whiff of its delicate fragrance. At least I assume it was just my imagination 🙂
