fig branch and gum leaves watercolour on paper
The more I look at Australian flora, the more beautiful I think it is. Wierd but beautiful.
Gum leaves. Who'd have thought there were so many shapes, sizes of leaves and flowers? And nearly all of the leaves I picked from the bush in last week's impromptu drive had a bite taken out of them.
And the figs... round little berries of figgy goodness. Trees ripening at different times no doubt to keep the fruit bats of Centennial Park in constant nourishment...
