With springtime fickle and fleeting, we couldn’t have come across Lindsay Buck’s online herbarium at a better time. Her incredible collection includes wildflower specimens sourced locally and internationally. Having started her collection in the open meadows of Switzerland, Buck brought it back with her to Minnesota, where she continues to collect, press, and add to her herbarium collection.
“The freshly pressed blog is my way of connecting with others and hopefully inspiring them to further explore the melding of art and nature,” she informs on her website. Having pursued degrees in biology, fine arts, and environmental studies, Buck believes that designers and scientists can both benefit from exploring across fields.
“My blog brings various projects and musings to press to motivate both professions (as well as those of us who fall in the middle) to approach their work with a fresh perspective and renewed sense of wonder,” she notes.
Her website also includes a short guide on how to collect and press flowers, so you too can follow her footsteps. Either that or you can admire her collection from afar via Instagram.
