The Second Act
by petal & pins
It is a year since my far North Queensland holiday and there are still things from that trip I haven’t shared with you that I wanted to!
Tropical flowers that offered new inspiration for garden fairy dresses – some realised, some just conjured up in my mind while admiring them (it’s not always appropriate to be a flower thief in someone else’s garden), or the romantic story behind Paronella Park and it’s decaying beauty and lush gardens.
I did share my Tropical Ballet which features Barringtonia Asiatica – a night flowering tree whose flowers by morning have fallen to the ground.
So without further ado here is the second act…
I like to think you will add your own imaginative take on the storyline of my tropical ballet but take a look at the beautiful nighttime costumes in act one before you do!
Loving the hem, colour and style. 🙂
Thanks Claudette – did you take a look at the previous post when the flowers are fresh? Such a change of colour!
Admit I did not, but I will go back and look-see, thanks.
You are in for a surprise!
Wow, the colours are different. Love the vibrancy Act One, but still drawn to the hem colour in Act 2 – must have been a heck of party for the dress to change so dramatically 🙂
What a story you could weave about what happens between Act 1 and 2! It seems a metaphor for the aging woman. Young, fresh and vibrant, then with age, faded and worn. Life as it is.
