Pressed Plants

Attached are photos of my pressed plants as well as my foraging them. I was lucky in that some friends were moving so I went to their house and they dug up some plants they bought from a nursery two hours away that were supposed to be native. Of course, when I ID’d them for the label I came across several articles saying they were invasive. Still- they are beautiful and for a short period until I can find them a home- so is my fire escape.

My friend digging up their Bee Balm instead of taking English Ivy. Bee Balm doesn’t flower in the “gardens” b/c there isn’t enough sunlight between the buildings blocking it.
