2016 / HERBIER
I realized I pressed some leaves in late 2016 which I still haven’t archived on my herbier collection. I guess I’ve been busy and lazy. I have to admit I’ve been quite slow with my herbier collection, and cold and wet weather doesn’t help. Over the weekend, I finally set down and took the long waited leaves out from the presser and tape them on to my herbier paper. This process is always very calming. Fragile leaves force you to handle them with care and respect. And once they are archived, they will always be handled with respect. It’s amazing how such a mundane thing could become so worthy.
While archiving, I also took some time to go through the leaves in my collection.
I can’t wait for the weather to warm up to start herbier of 2017.
