Mini Black & White Botanical Collection November 2019
This miniature collection has grown out of my many trips to a century year old botanical garden in my home town of Rockhampton, Queensland Australia. Sitting under the enormous fig trees, relaxing in their beautiful shade and watching the shadows of the leaves dance over the shoulders of my children.
I wrote a verse in my journal, lazily watching as the wind whispered in the branches.
'May the long time sun shine upon you,
you are so beautiful to me.
Be warm in the glow of my heart, always.
Grow strong & pure in the light.
Share your smile & your wisdom.
and be bold darling.
Be beautiful inside & out.
Let this day be a blessing to you,
and live long & well like this ancient tree'
