Sunday flowers with a difference.....!!

They have no perfumed smell, they certainly are not lush and soft to the touch, but they are as bright and colourful as many a plant out there ...! A while back we went to an exhibition of 'floral art' at the Art Gallery in the city, and before we even went in to see the main show, this unusual 'arrangement' was floating in a water feature at the entrance to the gallery. The petals are cut out of plain, patterned, coloured and textured linoleum. Once again my mind 'boggles' when I see the creative things that artists do with the most basic of materials.....!!  It's raining cats and dogs here in Perth today...love it!! Have an 'inspired' day.....!!
