There is nothing as pretty as some of the flowers I found at the Healesville Sanctuary when I went with Leanne, her friend Suzanne and Carol. I wish I knew the names to share with you, but maybe someone will slip in and rescue my ignorance.
Maybe I felt hot and this reminded me of snow. Or maybe it was like blowing on dandelions, which I did as a child. (My dad must have loved that!) I could actually draw some of these random patterns. I love the hazy, spider webby, x-ray quality of this photo.
These Australian gum nut gems have special stories about them, the Snugglepot and Cuddlepie series by May Gibbs.
I love the calligraphy/centipede-style flower. Isn’t it stunning?
These Australian fruits quickly dried and fell off in the warm summer weather. They look like raisins when dried, but these fruits do not look like grapes to me.
These brilliant leaf buds look like they are swimming in a watercolor sea.
Feel free to chime in if you know something about these. Which one is your favorite?
