Found Fiber and Flowers

I picked these up on a walk. The longer piece of fiber is from a leaf that probably lay on the pavement all winter and was naturally 'retted' which separated the strands. They are extremely strong and impossible to tear by hand. I think it may be New Zealand Flax, a ubiquitous garden plant around here.

The flowers had all fallen. I like the pinks with the browning edges. The magnolia buds have a strange, touching, dead weight to them.

There'll be three or four new jewels tomorrow.

Estoy flipando con la técnica, es la primera vez que veo algo así. Podría explicarme algo más?
