You are not limited in what type of flower you can preserve. Do not assume you can only dry the flowers that grow in your own yard, either. If you can pick it, or buy it at a market, it can be dried.
In addition, you should not limit yourself to just drying flowers. Ferns, ornamental grasses, seed pods, berries and leaves can all be dried, as well.
If you plan to travel through a scenic area, keep your eyes open for interesting plants and flowers. Keep a couple of empty shoe boxes handy in the trunk of your car to transport them home.
