American Lindsay Buck is a landscape architect by profession and online herbarium cataloguer by passion.
Fascinated by the beauty of the wildflowers and plants in the meadows and forests near her home in Switzerland, Lindsay decided to start preserving and documenting the wonderful variety she found during her daily walks. Tapping into her creative side, she has pressed each specimen and produced an online herbarium that explores the interconnectedness between botanical science and art.

I am grateful for my giant stash of blossoms from the summer to get me through the grey winter months!
