Spent my working afternoon completing a sort of nerdy botanical pilgrimage poking inside the Queensland Herbarium. Walking the isles of centuries of our country's botanical history and viewing these amazing planty relics! . These are original specimens the one in the foreground was preserved by our nations' first botanist Joseph Banks collected on the first voyage to 'New Holland' (Australia) in 1770. A sprig of Melaleuca leucadendron still as beautifully preserved now as the day he…

Soft and sultry.  My roses enjoy all this unseasonal rain.  I know theyre just lingering in this beautiful space before humid closeness blemishes their petals. Welcoming first days of summer but wishing spring was longer...

Saturdays are for this... coffee | birdsong | greens | sunbeams

Man it's dry! I miss you rain. Filled all the bird baths today and watched the magpies and honeyeaters and lorikeets renew themselves in the clean water. I'm trying to remember what green looked like.

Joy is... The Lovely Lorne Coastline.

Wintery wonders. So vibing on the gorgeous dusty foliage of this Eucalypt I uncovered in the Royal #Botanic Gardens in the heart of Melbourne.  Images from our Great Southy Adventure are finally getting a look in (read: I take wayyy too many photos!). I think this one will inspire some future paintings and textures!

Feeling botanical anyone!?!? Begin your journey with me into the wonderful world of flora - I'm excited to be teaching this class at Northey Street City Farm on the 15th of July. Never confuse your Pararistolochia with your Paraschistochila again!!  . . . . #botanical #flora #floral #nature #greenlifelove #livethelittlethings #flowers #brisbane #northeystreet #learn #sciencerocks

Oh what a lovely Friday! A fascinating seminar at my ye olde Uni campus with my inspiring colleagues. Then a drizzly eve in the #creative cave practicing painting pretty petals.  Meanwhile white petals are surprisingly hard to paint on a white page!  . .  #botanical #thatsdarling #weekend #floral #watercolor #watercolour #annamasonart #greenlifelove

One of my fave shots from my weekend at #earthfrequency festival. An amazing chance to stretch my creative photography chops! I found myself snapping away at The Herd Deya Dova and other amazing acts a crowd of thousands of glitter-strewn humans dancing madly lights smoke bass - I was totally in 'creative work' mode clicking away on stage until I realised - WOW this is so frickin' awesome! Lol. . The beautiful @deyadova (pictured) was such a spectacular feather-clad vocal goddess! Such a…

There's a reason we find beauty in balance... I think perhaps because the idea of balance is such a lovely illusion. Balance is there and yet not there. There is no balance no equilibrium without a constant exchange of incomings and outgoings. Energy in energy out... in perfect measure... exquisitely  corrected at every moment. Never really still never really paused. . You'll never balance on a tightrope without subtle and constant adjustment of your muscles. You'll never balance your…

Gotta love #Crafternoon chaos.

Oh man the best thing about about #summer I think must be the roses! I just love slinging a bouquet together from the garden - and taking them to special friends when I go a-visiting! It's the little things we do for each other that make life so special. Flowers are my favorite thing to give and receive. So temporary in their freshness and beauty it forces you to be present with them while they are with you. Perhaps that gift mindfulness is part of why they're so universally loved.  Happy…
