Our own hybrid!

We have some hibiscus plants in bloom…most surprising is one plant that has bright pink flowers, pale yellow flowers and some stripey mutations! There are two seperate plants nearby, one with pale yellow flowers, the other with bright pink. So some interbreeding has happened…beautiful! The photo with two flowers…well they’re actually on the same branch…Amazing.

Christmas greetings

Wishing every one of my followers, and everyone in the blogosphere a wonderful Christmas season and happy holidays!…here’s a Christmas Waratah mandala greeting for you.

Update to Gallery 3

I’ve updated my Gallery 3 with two new mandala wall art pieces…take a peek!

Christmas mandalas

I’ve completed some Christmas mandalas...just for fun. For the Jacobean Lily mandala I used photos of my flowering Jacobean lily…red and green and Christmassy. The Crystal Christmas lights mandala is based on my photos of crystals and skies. Both have special “light” backgrounds to reflect the mood of the season. Hope you enjoy them!

Exciting tree

A tree is flowering in our front yard. I have no clue what it is, but it’s probably a local rainforest tree. It smells like honey. The clumps of flowers are lush, and the colour a vibrant golden yellow. Insects adore the tree….a wonderful inspiration for any creative activity. Hope you enjoy the pics…pardon the rain smudge on the second image!

Gardening

Loving the weather lately….good for gardening and planting. I’ve purchased quite a few things and am creating gardens now where they can happily grow.

Wind swept

Beautiful day on the Mountain, and some interesting cloud formations.

 

Plants for the garden

At my new place I’ve been thinking about the gardens I can make…bought some plants and planted out some trees also. I had to quickly water the purple heliotrope...it was looking a bit dry. I’ll start working on some garden beds soon. It’s kind of exciting to be able to choose my own plants and where I’ll put them…so many ideas!

New works on my Gallery 1

Have a peek at my latest works…uploaded to Gallery 1.

 

Three new paintings

I’ve been creating some new works from my mountain hideout…today I’m posting 3 small ones. Two paintings have been heavily influenced by my relocation, and the weather conditions experienced with mountain living….when it’s wet, it’s wet! Loving being in an abode with more nature close by though…we have some rainforest remnant on the property. The other painting is more about the iridescent quality of tidal lakes in summer…the shimmering blue energy of that. The mountain works express green-ness and the energy of growth (things grow like lightning up here!), but also the white cloud/mistiness experienced here on the mountain.
