Initally my collection was limited to my garden and the local florist, but as as I started falling in love with my new subject, I found myself meandering through the midlands and Drakensberg of Kwa Zulu Natal , to the beautiful floral kingdom of the Western Cape.

To lose yourself in the splendour of nature while being productive, is the most wonderous gift. Suddenly I was noticing little buds in the ground or something as simple as an isolated watsona on a mountain walk. Add to that, a trip to England in Spring and the East in the summer.
