Bold bee Balm


"Bold Bee Balm,"  Pressed flowers on handmade paper
 8 1/2 x 11" matted.  October 2010

Some flowers are sweet and tranquil, like pansies or lavender, others are in your face so to speak, like bee balm.  It's bold colored petals are arrayed like exploding fireworks, and being a member of the mint family, they conspire to take over your flower garden if given half a chance! And they are beloved by both bees and hummingbirds, so a person just about takes their life in their hands when trying to pick them...

Bold Bee Balm is a side view of two deep red bee balm flowers, mounted on my handmade paper, sealed with an invisible UV resistant coating, and is ready to frame.
