There is a lovely kind hearted and thoughtful person amongst us and that is our dear Ariane who has organised a little event to wish another special person in our community a Happy Birthday.
I jumped at the chance to take part because Nadine has become of sorts a friend. I question the traditional form of a friend someone you have face to face with who is a part of your 'real life' as we call it but a friend nonetheless who also offers support and encouragement, who takes an interest in what you are doing and entertains you with their stories and visions.
So my friend Nadine HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!
I hope you have a wonderful day filled with cake, coffee and presents!
My present to you is this post.
I wanted to give you flowers from my side of the world.
Margaret Preston is our most famous painter/printmaker of Australian flora.
Her artworks are accessible to Australians as they are popular subjects for cards and prints which is why she is still popular today.
I really love her sturt desert pea artworks. One of Australias more unusual flowers.
I hope you enjoy this post Miss Nadine.
To Ariane such a lovely idea thanks for organising it.
