Tiny floral art scale

A friend suggested I put a coin against my art works to give scale…I should have thought that myself! Well here are two beautiful mini vases from Lyn at #thestudiohandmade with dried Australian wildflowers mixed with non native flora.

Winter in the Loddon Mallee bush

I love this time of year when the wildflowers are gathering strength to show off their beauty. The Bendigo/Fairy wax is flowering and yet it is the sundews that took my eye on our recent bush walk. The creeping sundew is an intriguing plant and this patch was lovely in the winter light.

Two night trip to Benalla
