Banksias are an iconic and unique Australian native. This green and gold combination is a beautiful expression of the national colours of our country. Particularly relevant on this day of gratitude and national pride #australiannativeflowers
As I do this interior and exterior journey, I am discovering things I would not normally look at. I have found some beautiful plants out in the paddocks and in our garden to do a arrangement for my kitchen. As I still had a few native flowers left over from a bunch I purchased a few weeks ago, I used them as my base and worked with them. #bushplants#australiannativeflowers

ANZAC biscuits - said to have been lovingly baked by wives as mothers and sent to Anzac soldiers while on duty as the ingredients would keep for long journeys. An Anzac tradition 🇦🇺 #lestweforget#theluckycountry Concept, styling & props @deckthehallsstyling Florals @flourishflowermerchants . . . . .
I love experimenting with different Australian plants in pots and containers to see the results. This is Banksia spinulosa 'birthday candles'. It's putting on a great show this Autumn. #australiannatives#australianflowers
Some of the beautiful Sturt desert pea that I found growing out here in this harsh landscape. I always thought that it grew on a bush but it doesn’t, it grows on a vine that creeps along the ground. #outbacklifestyle#canon

The females mate and then build a solitary nest by themselves (but they tend to be attracted to areas where other females are nesting.) ⋒ ⋒ ⋒ 🐝🌼 Want to attract them ...
The flowering gums in my neighbourhood kicked off the flowering season in November with the orange varieties, followed by many shades of pink & now the red blossoms. It’s been wonderful to have had five months of spectacular flowering to enjoy. #corymbiaficifolia#graftedgum

Recently when I was on a roll with some banksia women drawings, my mum had this genius idea that I share one with you all ...
Back in October in Brisbane on dusk... my favourite time in our garden. Pink blossom of Geraldton Wax, white flowers of Leptospermum (Tea Tree) and mauve Jacaranda. I have the common problem of not spending enough time in the garden so I’m grateful for these neglected stalwarts! #australiannativeflowers#nativegarden
