I think I like the Setacolor better, mainly because of the blending of the colours and the consistent values of each colour. With the Genesis piece, there is a lot of dark/light contrast in each colour, which isn’t what I was looking for here, but it will suit another project sometime …..
As promised here are some more garden photos. First is the entrance to our driveway, where three different hawthorne trees – red, white and pink flowered – have joined their foliage to create an arch over the roadway, nearly smothering other plants including a very large aloe and a cabbage tree (I think) below them.
The gelder rose – old fashioned pom-pom tree – and white lilac have been magnificent this yearuntil the wind and rain hastened dropping their petals. It has looked like a heavy snowfall every day for a week now.The lily of the valley has grown very tall this year, nearly twice its normal height, it would be a good 70cm high, must be all the rain we have had this spring.
Further along the drive are the native trees, including this banksia, which still has one of last year’s nuts still holding on with the new leaves around it – they look amazingly life-like little creatures don’t they.
