You get a gift of flowers and you want to preserve them, what do you do? Yes, you can preserve them in the traditional way, dry the flowers, press them, etc. But what if you want to preserve the picture.
I love preserving flowers — virtually, by photographs, videographs. Flowers are here and there and sometimes gone before you know it. So, next time you get flowers or buy flowers or even give flowers or plants, take those pictures! Some are beautiful enough to frame and hang on the wall.
Take a picture of the flowers and then take a screenshot and you will have your flowers forever. Put them on a disk to share them with others or email the flowers to someone.
I took a picture and then took a screenshot (from our video of the flowers).
One season, I found these flowers at Costco, (much cheaper than at any other store), and I , I planted these beautiful blue orchids outdoors in front of our house and they lasted almost the whole season –until the landscapers (not mine) cut them down , mowed them down. I’m really glad I got to preserve the flowers in my computer .
I’d like to start mini lessons, online , on how to do simple things with your computers or with your garden, almost anything creative.
Here is my screenshot of the our flowers.
These are the coolest. Someday, far in the future, I will plant more orchids. For now, I’ll have to stick to more inexpensive flowers. And I have found a way to stop landscapers from mowing the flowers down. I added a little mini fence to protect the flower area.
Though the landscapers mowed these down, I’ll always have the memory of them as they graced our side/front yard. 🙂
