{More} Christmas Florals....

Above: This is the image I decided upon for this years cards - I love the detail ,
the subtle texture and the natural pattern within the petal.

The other day I posted my Christmas cards that I made for this year, and thought I would share the inspiration behind the floral images - that are my Grandmother's , aka Sarah & 'Grandma', beautiful & luscious - Hippeastrums. Their large petals in cherry tomato red, bright white, and long juicy, lime greens stems are sublimely perfect epitomising the freshness of a southern hemisphere summer Christmas
