In the garden…lilly pilly’s, cordylines, violets and grevilleas

Been busy with the HSC exam ‘taxi-run’ for my son and visiting my mother-in-law who is in a nursing home and been very unwell. I have done a little artwork in between but not a great deal but will hopefully show that later in the week. Sometimes it is hard to find the ‘headspace’ needed to work in amongst the ‘busyness’ – caring for others especially for frail elderly – even, or at times particularly, those in care, as nursing homes can often adopt a very beaurocratic formula that leaves little opportunity for individuals – this can require considerable skill to navigate!! It is rewarding interacting with our often forgotten ‘wise ones’ (and yes even those with dementia can still give us marvellous insights into the past and in how interesting the human mind can be) but it often leaves very little time for other things.

In the meantime here are some of the things currently flowering in my garden.

…a rainforest lilly pilly and cordyline flowers…

…some native violets that carpet many of my garden areas…

…a powderpuff lilly pilly and scarlet sprite groundcover grevillea…
