May's roses

May turns 90 this year. Here are some roses she bought over to thank me for pruning her bushes. This rose is Queen Elizabeth.

Chrysanthemum Card Set

I made a light box today to photograph my new cards. I think the quality of the pics has improved because of it.
Love the honey yellow of these cards.

Sculpture by the Sea

Such breathtaking landscape along the coastal walk between Bondi and Bronte. This sculpture exhibition is always fantastic.

We loved this ring of found object totems called 'wreath' by Jane Gillings.

camellia card sets

The black and the plain pink have quite different looks. I love the way they seem to be floating in this attempt at creative photography.

macleaya cordata

This has to be one of the great foliage plants. Apparently it is a mad weed but with such amazing and finely cut leaves I will put up with that for now.


How cute is this. Can you see the little flowers in the centre of the bloom. An amazing violet colour they look like someone drew them.

gleditsia 'Ruby Lace'

I just love the colour combination in these flowers of the olive green, purple and brown red.

jack o'lantern

Love this design I got off the net. Learnt a lot on this first attempt at pumpkin carving.


What an amazing piece of art this found nest is.

rose seedling

After many tries I have managed to grow a rose from seed collected last winter in a nearby park. Amazingly this tiny creature is sending out this even tinier bud. Fingers crossed it will manage to flower. If it does I'll post it here.


My new Filigree gocco print. Made three colourways: white on dark grey card, black on white and this black on light grey. Inspired by William Morris wallpaper designs.
