Hello my flower friends!
I was really hoping the beginning of 2020 would mean the end of the bushfires. Unfortunately, that's not the case. I've been watching the weather forecast like mad, seeing rain forecast, only to be disappointed that it changes to sun and more sun! But I'm still hopeful :).
Just like you, I've been horrified by the effects of the fires raging across Australia. Yet, it has been so heart warming to see the generosity of people from all over the world.
As such, I've been inspired to do more! I've created two downloadable Flowering Gum prints and one downloadable poem print available to order. I can't imagine what people must be going through having lost so much.
I'm trying to do my bit. ALL proceeds go to Red Cross Australia Disaster Relief and Recovery. I'd love to raise $1000; that's 40 orders. Please help spread the word!
Flowering Gum Prints
Flowering gum is one of the most popular Australian Natives, which is why I have chosen this particular flower. They take most people back to their childhood where we were introduced to May Gibbs' gorgeous little gumnut babies.
They're such a beautiful and interesting flower and like a lot of Australian natives, they have stamens and not petals. They come in a variety of colours: pinks, reds, oranges, to white/cream.
They are typically in season from the end of November until February, but there may be bursts throughout the year. Though the leaves and gumnuts are long lasting, the actual flower itself lasts for about 5 days. Another reason it's so special.
This is an 8"x10" downloadable print only. It will print as an 8"x10" print on A4 size paper, which is perfect slipping into a frame. You will receive a link to download your Digital flower print in the Thank You page, along with an emailed link that will last for 30 days.
Bloom Again Poem
Bloom Again was written by me in response to these ongoing fires raging across Australia. I've donated to NSWRFS and Wires. Yet as I get to lay in my comfy bed amongst all my belongings that make home feel like home, I want to do more.
If you can share this to your family and friends and across your social media, that would be SO appreciated. Let's do what we can to show up for our country! Thank you so much for your continued support.
