Pressed Flowers.

Flowers and leaves get into odd places, and past generations have pressed them between the covers of books and then frequently forgotten them.
I started photographing what I came across  and then started pressing flowers myself.
The four above were the first ones I found, and three of the images were auctioned by the charity Photovoice
The leaves top left were found in Uncle Mike's bible; the palm in his wife Barbara's bible; the rose petals and the five leaves from inside a copy of Son's and Lovers.
All shot on Polaroid type 55, my supply of which is near its end.
