Celandines

I came across this clump of celandines today.

The flowers were fully open despite the fact that it was raining about an hour later. They’d be pretty useless as a weather-glass!

I was reminded of one of my favourite paperweights.

I don’t remember where it came from, but it would have been made by pouring acrylic resin in layers so as to trap the flowers.

I’d love to do that, except that paperweights are going out in a paperless society!
