Sometimes inspiration comes from the strangest places.  Washing hanging on the line, T-shirts in shades of emerald, forest green and duck-egg blue started me thinking of a drive down to the coast on a winters day.  Native plants jostle in the foreground they somehow seem brighter in winter; the green are more brilliant and leaves glitter with light.  Behind the flaxes the sky and sea seem muted by the misty air while the Ti Toi shines out it's plumes silvery in the wintery light.
