“L” is for a little leaf that somehow made it’s way inside my house. I found it in the hallway. It probably hitchhiked in on our shoes or blew in from the porch. It was such a tiny, little thing that I decided to keep it, preserving it with the waxed paper method. Personally, I prefer that method to the glycerin method of preserving leaves. Shortly after I removed the leaves from the glycerin mixture, they all turned a muddy brown. The glycerin apparently does not preserve the colors in the same way as pressing them in waxed paper.
