A stroll in the Australian Royal Botanic Gardens, Cranbourne, part 1/4. On entering The Red Sands Garden, the visitor is treated to a landscape design of colour and breathtaking view that is so like experiencing Australia’s Red Outback it almost needs focal adjustment. For the flora that thrives here, it’s in fact a harsh yet wonderous environment supporting only tough plants of short stature, often bearing fascinatingly beautiful floral structures like those of the Desert Rose and bizarre, aptly named Kangaroo Paws. Bottle brush flowers such as Banksia make a popular source of nectar for pollinating birds like Helmeted Honeyeaters. A closer look reveals fan shaped Scaevola half-flowers and curious Lichen covered forms looking like branched abstract sculptures.

Box framed in distressed white limed Australian Tasmanian Oak with shatter proof acrylic glazing, ready to hang.
