My “creative art practice” may be be succinctly summed up in the following fantastic metaphorical quote by Kandinsky:
~ “Colour is the keyboard, the eyes are the harmonies, the soul is the piano with many strings. The artist is the hand that plays, touching one key then another to cause vibration of the soul.”

    Congrats on your TZ feature!! Such an incredible bloom!!

  • Thanks Sally and yes they are. The plants continue to thrive well with very little maintenance, except for the occasional cull/cutting back, in our somewhat protected large backyard, come wet seasons (or hellish Cat.5 cyclones) or glorious hot sunshiny days (dry season) as experiencing now.

    Beautiful work Kerryn, congratulations on your feature in The Tropical Zone !
    How wonderful to have this beauty growing in your garden :)

  • Thankyou Trish. They are a definite a-la-natural for growing in our tropical FNQ environment. Just need lots of space as they continue to spread on outwards.
