A very goth herb. #Haemodorum planifolium (Bloodroot) is fairly widespread along the east coast and related to the famous #Kangaroo Paws of WA. Here you can see the yellow #anthers and the long #tepals. At the end of summer, bloodroot leaves die back leaving behind the tall, sculptural dried capsules.

Petrophile pulchella, one of my favourite plants on a bushwalk. If they aren't flowering or fruiting, pink-red youngen's are sprouting up along the edge of the track. Look lovely all year round.

Visited the Medika Gallery yesterday in Blyth (not far from Clare). It's one of my favourites as Ian Roberts, the local artist and owner of the gallery (he also runs the cinema across the road) stocks hand coloured lino prints by Vida Pearson. Vida's work is extraordinary as she manages to create such fine detail using a medium that can be 'chunky'. This caught my eye yesterday because it's mainly a black and white composition with only a touch of colour, and the texture created when she carved the feathers is just gorgeous. Beautiful use of positive and negative space.I took some detailed photos and have included the whole image courtesy of: http://www.possumgullyfinearts.com.au/images/artists/Vida/Breeding--Beauty.jpg (as the print could not be found on Vida's own website: http://www.vidapearson.com/) I highly recommend her work if you love beautiful artworks of Aussie flora and fauna. #linocut #linoprint #lino #vidapearson #blythSA #clarevalleysa #ozflora #ozfauna #art #artist #medikagallery
