Despite the pervasive grey of July in Melbourne, I keep coming across lovely vignettes of natural beauty all across the city. Texture, colour, and the cold, almost European light in Melbourne brings a clarity that's really refreshing.
I also love the rhythm and form of the many succulent plants that are grown in botanical gardens, in borders and massed as vast ground covers. The colours and shapes are really interesting. I would love to have the time to transform these into the basis of a collection.
And then there are just the pretty flowers..
