We have such lovely flora in South East Queensland. Picking up leaves at the beach is a favourite pastime. Leaves make particularly good sandcastle adornments.
Last week while stopping for a quick evening swim I was greeted by a wonderful sandcastle. The beach was empty. The small formation was a simple mound covered in round brown leaves. It caught the setting sunlight and glowed gold. Glorious.
I gave my sister Liz a collection of melaleuca brooches for christmas. They work well in small clusters, each catching the light in a different direction.
Pair your favourite leaf with your favourite metals…
