wisteria vine, dawnThis morning's sunrise through the bare branches of our neighbour's crazy old wisteria vine.wattle flower, melbourneBright sunny yellow wattle flower. I just love this time of year. The early signs of spring are popping up everywhere. I saw a magnolia tree beginning to flower in my street a couple of days ago. Who doesn't love a magnolia in flower? So sculptural to look at.
camelia flower, pinkEven the camelias (not my favourite plant) are looking good.

in blue

blue, repeat pattern, dashblue, repeat pattern, dashblue, repeat pattern, dashIt never ceases to amaze me what a beautiful piece of software Photoshop is. I don't even know a fraction of what it can really do for me but the fact that I can take some rough hand drawn patterns like these dashes of mine and then make a variety of repeats in different colourways like this just fills me with joy. Is that nerdy or what?

There is a birthday in our house today. If I'm organised enough there will be a Jamie chocolate tart for dessert tonight. Got to get my skates on!
