Another weed, another day in Inktober, another experiment:

Arum Lilies – #Inktober 15

Arum Lilies are matter out of place in the bush of Western Australia.  They are too successful here, clog waterways and prevent natives or pasture plants from growing.  A good excuse to pick a big bunch of the beautiful flowers!


One Mans Flowers…

Many of the wildflowers in our garden at Balligar in Western Australia have turned out to be weeds – officially declared pests! This has led to much thought about the concept of weeds – or “matter out of place” as described by E.J. Salisbury (a botanist) – and germinated the seeds of a new series. This is a prototype inspired by the Arum Lilies that grow in clumps in the lower part of our property.
