Many years ago I painted. Then I realised that I did better at photography than painting – and that has been my medium of expression ever since.

    Lovely rich colour, I have some purple ones in the garden

  • The purples are very pretty, too. Do you have a large garden, Mik?

    The color is super, as the red is so vibrant against the green. You have the makings of what could be a nice series for the holidays in 2013: Christmas/holiday cards themed on Australian natives.

  • I make my own cards from my flower photos – often use them as ‘notelets’, too. People tend not to throw them away, which is pleasing.

    So beautiful, Bette..you’ve captured the colors well! I’m so envious of your beautiful flowers!!

  • Many thanks, Lynn. I think that we in Australia are very lucky to have such a variety – but you must have many lovely wildflowers in America!?

    Yes, Bette…we have lots of wild flowers but it always seems that the ones we don’t see or have are more exciting! also we have snow on the ground now…no wild flowers for a few months!
