A few weeks ago I composed this still life with remnants of an embroidered silk, my grandmother’s teacup, apples & seed pods.

It captured all the Autumn russet tones in my garden and around the neighbourhood.

 A florists window display – taken on a weekend away in Melbourne.

Now most of the trees are bare and I spent Saturday raking piles of leaves to reveal the green tips of bulbs pushing through to catch the winter sun.
