One of my best friends recently became an Australian citizen at a ceremony on January 26th. With permission, I took home one of the numerous leftover bunches of native flowers from the townhall. I initially intended to make this flower crown with silver eucalyptus leaves as well, but I found the leucadendrons to be rich and full enough on their own.
As per usual, I used a base of fresh, de-leaved vine (this time was star jasmine, with its sticky white sap washed off, of course) and secured the leucadendrons with wire.
I don’t normally wear full-length dresses (nor sleeveless for that matter), but I felt the colours and tribal print of this maxi dress matched the leucadendrons perfectly. My sister-in-law and I chose this nearby park for convenience- fortunately for us, there were still a number of lush reeds growing near the duckpond, despite the hot, dry Australian summer!
This is also be my first and last photoshoot of 2018 with my sister-in-law… because she and my brother are going traveling for a year! (Follow them on instagram (@nathanandpk) or their blog (https://nathanandpk.com/)) I should focus on my studies anyway, as I am currently on placement at a rural hospital for my penultimate year of medical school- come 2019, I will have passed my final barrier exams and be just one year away from being a doctor! :O If anything however, I will find the time in the country a good opportunity to find time for blogging!
