I have always loved Dr Seuss, but only as an adult have I really appreciated the depth and profound nature of his writings.
As I was painting the beautiful wattle, I was reminded of The Lorax, and the beautiful truffler trees (before they were cut down).
How lucky are we to be surrounded by such beauty. It is breathtaking to see the diversity around us; even amongst such an unforgiving environment in Australia.
