We have a native tree call the Bottle Brush (for our internationals) and it blooms are out in full where I live in December. When I see our tree out in full colour it always reminds me of the traditional Christmas colours of green and red. This is a beautiful tree.
This lovely sentence written on the blackboard was at the studio last week when I had a couple of senior students in for some extra class, (one is off to the Australian Ballet School in January for summer school) and this is what they left behind. Isnt it just so warming that 17-18yrs olds can feel they can do things like that - to leave a such an appreciated little note.
AUSSIE SCRAPJACKED There are three Jacks to jack! Too much fun. Here's another I had a try at. You can find the challenge here.
