I did this collage at the beginning of the year as a response to the floods in Queensland- before they actually swamped Brisbane. Since then I found it awfully relevant to the horrific events in Japan and New Zealand. I intended it as a message to my loved ones and friends in Queensland- both as my hope for them, as well as a description of what they already had shown, but it goes to Japan, and New Zealand as well.
The flower is borage- a herb drunk as a tea by medieval knights before going into battle... for courage.

I'm showing off my beautiful pumpkins harvested just recently- the orangey pink one is actually an Australian variety and is huge and delicious!Couldn't believe it when my Canadian friend told me that over there they only grow big empty pumkins for carving and nobody grows then to eat! What a waste.
Been pretty busy lately and have quite a few things to share,so watch this space and eventually I'll load it all up.
