raking aside leaves
on the background pond

– A haiku by H. F. Noyes
Dry leaves between the pages started with my botany student sister years ago. This is one project which is ever going. I did it too and now my daughters have a few thick notebooks full of dry leaves and flowers.
This is what my elder daughter did for her school project – a wall hanging.
The creepers are of dried tomato plants. Orchids and bougainvillea flowers are kept as it is. The body of butterfly is made of rose leaves. The feathery wild growth (?) (on the right side) and wings of butterfly are coloured.
The wings of butterfly with their antennas are absolutely untouched-see the nature’s perfect cuts!
I can’t recognize these leaves (I mean the wings of butterfly ones). Anybody know? May be Robyn of garden rooms will be able to tell us.
