My kangaroo paw grows...

Oh my goodness... it's been a while! Poor neglected gardening blog but here I am with some lovely pics and updates to share.

I took these pics in mum's back garden recently because she wanted me to capture the Oleanders flowering but I was more impressed with my 3 kangaroo paw plants! I transplanted cuttings when I moved from my home up the coast and it took a while for them to establish themselves but now they are beginning to thrive.

The original plant was the inspiration behind my stylised kangaroo paw fabric design, having taken a branch of the plant and created an illustration from it. That design has also appeared on my eco-friendly greeting cards and is now available on a limited range of eco-friendly notebooks (see b! There are a number of Australian native flora and fauna designs adorning the covers of these notebooks so pop on over to my Etsy shop to see the range.

Further to this, I just updated my business blog with some plans and projects for 2014.
What about you - what do you have planned for 2014?
