The Kangaroo Paw is in flower again. These are photos I took last year of some planted by the Council just down the road from me. You can see why they are called Kangaroo Paw - both the shape and the furry texture of the plant (but maybe not the colour).
I can't believe 12 months have gone by. I was full of good intentions to design a Kangaroo Paw print but nothing has happened yet.... Where does the time go. Maybe in the next twelve months....
I love when the flowers open up. Just perfect for a stencil print
Of course there are lots of other colours. Here are some from my sister's native plant nursery in Tasmania.
Many Australian textile designers/screenprinters have been inspired by this spectacular plant. Here are a few of their interpretations
INK AND SPINDLE
Have I missed any?
