Thanks Port Melbourne

I was on the hunt for some nice Australian native flora to put in a vase at home. The local flower shop didn't have any but Port Melbourne's nature strips came up with the goods - 'borrowed' after dark whilst visiting friends. Thanks Port!

I do approve of a suburb that plants Flowering Gums for it's residents. Would make a nice print, no?

Just wonderful! Always think of Margaret Prestons beautiful prints when I see these (and I just happen to be reading some May Gibbs to my kids at bedtime!)

This is my favourite colour palette of all time. I am looking at the colour of the leaves, the blossoms and the bark as the palette for repainting our living area.

A house near us has a version with the most remarkable orange blossom instead of the red - it has a touch of apricot in it - hideous if you got it wrong but noice, diffrent, unyouseyuel if you nailed it.

They remind me of sea anemones.

These are beautiful! I have quite a few growing in my yard, but something keeps eating the blossoms out from the inside before they open. So disappointing! But I'm glad you found some :)

How have they lasted in water?
