The hot and sunny month of August ushers in a cascade or brilliant orange and yellow cosmos flowers. I look forward to these flowers every year, as they brighten up my front garden now that the pansies have dwindled away.
Orange cosmos flowers press beautifully with the Microfleur microwave flower press, and with their finely cut dark green foliage, these flowers seem to leap from the page when I use them in my pressed flower cards and framed art collages. What a joy to work with something that is already so beautiful!
As you might have guessed, my featured pressed flower card for the month of August is the Orange Cosmos Card.
