A Weekend of Contrasts!

Firstly, hanging the washing out yesterday, I spied this magnificent Wisteria growing next door but one to our house. It has always been a favourite to embroider and the colours in real life are really beautiful!
And when I arrived home from work on Friday, our eldest daughter had arrived for the weekend from university in Sydney and had covered the dining table with her creativity! She is working on her final collection for her final year and has designed such fantastic patterns and fabrics for her range! Just a glimpse here, but when she finishes I can show you the real thing! Very proud of you Ash and your amazing creative gift, and nice to know that you secretly read my blog so this one is for you!
And lastly, we have watched for months as this Gymea Lily has grown atop a huge stalk! And finally, the flower head burst forth this weekend and it looks amazing - unfortunately my zoom is not fantastic - but you get the general idea! For those of you who aren't familiar with this plant - the flower is about the size of a basketball!
