To go along with my last post I figured I should show some of the inspiration for the work I am making this term.

These are banksia pods, and they are my new favourite thing.  The pods are such fascinating objects in and of themselves, but the plants are pretty interesting as well.  The most fascinating thing I have learned is that they can be pretty resistant to brush fire and that the brush fires coming through can even help with germination. 

I love the textures in mushrooms so much.  Look at those beautiful gills!


The colours in these ones are really beautiful too

Lotus seeds

Love the colours in this photo:

I love how light and wonderful these milkweed seeds look.
