Chandra MacDonald - Lilii Press
“The easiest way to help save the bees is to do nothing- don’t mow your lawn, your verge, don’t spray your weeds, don’t cut them down. Just sit back and relax, and know that you are actively supplying the bees with food”
My shop Lilii press was born out of my love for flowers and plants. There is something so magical about being able to press a flower and preserve its original beauty to be enjoyed all year round.
