See this leaf . . . .
it is a lupine leaf and I think they are beautiful.
Lupines also have beautiful flowers.....
I took this picture last June,
but it is June again, and the lupines have started to bloom again.
But when I made this book, it was the lupine leaf that I wanted to use.
I find its lovely shape to be simple yet beautiful.
So I combined it with layers of tea bags, some paint and some ink to make the cover of a book.
I left the pages all blank, and its new owner can fill the pages any way she likes.
The back cover also has a lupine leaf on it.
I guess it is almost time to go out and look for other plants to press and add to my collection. . . .
and at the same time enjoy the beautiful lupines.
