happiness is - flowers.

Whether you are lucky enough to be given a bunch, treat yourself to some, or have the satisfaction of growing your own, there is no denying flowers = beauty + joy. Spring is the perfect time to enjoy an abundance of varieties in full bloom and one of my favourite 'flower families' are Australian natives, which are simply stunning. I Recently snapped these photos of banksias, callistemons and grevillas at my parents place. My dad is a native enthusiast and has devoted an entire garden to myriad varieties. He also cultivated my love of these Aussie beauties. Thanks Dad!
