# DC277

Since spending time in New Zealand I have been inspired by the culture, fauna and flora.
They have a magnificent tree named Pohutukawa which is smothered in scarlet puffball flowers. My circles are to suggest the flower closed, from above and then opened.
I think Pixieoze from Margaret Bremner is the only design I have borrowed but apologise if anything else is taken :)

  1. I can't believe you not only opened the packet, but actually used one of your new tan tiles! Well done! Now breathe and relax!

  2. We have something similar in San Diego,California, I didn't know what they were called, so I call them pompoms. I love to watch them unfurl. Love your tile. :)

    1. Thank you Nic :) These are Metrosideros excelsa if you want to google them. I live in Spain, being in California do you have trouble with your pens, ink etc drying in the dry heat too? Any brilliant tips lol?

  4. I love your tile and I love the inspiration. My hubby is from New Zealand and I was hoping to go there one day, but probably won't make it. I love the way you have interpreted the flora and fauna, so beautifully rendered!
