I live in the heart if the beautiful Swan Valley, Western Australia. Along with the production of wine from the vineyards in the area, there are producers of many other fruits and vegetables. Many of my reference photos are taken from produce grown in local backyards or friends farms.
There are so many glorious blooms to capture in this world....
The list is endless.
I have recently discovered the joy in the local flora right in my backyard, Western Australia
Peonies are considered a symbol of riches and honor. With their lush, full, rounded bloom, peonies embody romance and prosperity and are regarded as an omen of good fortune and a happy marriage.
I love a poppy in springtime.
They are the national flower of South Africa, my country of birth.
They flourish equally as well in the Australian climate. Their rugged beauty is majestic.
I love the beauty in the simplicity of a rose. Their heavenly scent invokes memories of a life loved and lived.
