Introducing Ruby Falcon's Wild Flowers

PICKED, Pressed, Printed

Like many, Ruby was furloughed at the beginning of lockdown and had a lot of spare time on her hands. Having grown up in the middle of nowhere in Norfolk, she found herself stuck in a city and yearning for the peace and quiet of the fields and woods, which she knew would soon be brimming with beautiful wild flowers. 

After a few weeks of trudging along pavements she came across Marston Marshes, a nature reserve in the city of Norwich. It was like walking into paradise. Its edges were heaving with cow parsley, buttercups danced about all over the place and the woods were carpeted in forget-me-nots. 
 
Ruby couldn’t help herself and picked a few to bring home with her. This has resulted in a deep obsession and fascination with wild plants and the traditional method of flower pressing.
