Pressed blue flower.

Found in "The Book of Psalms In Metre" published by United Presbyterian Board of Publication, Pittsburgh, circa 1860.

  4. I'm guessing it's around the same age as the book. 100 years, at least.

  8. It is kind of amazing to think that a flower, from possibly 100 years ago, could still be so beautiful and admired by so many people. I think this is a neat blog. Thanks for sharing.
