Just to prove it was no fluke growing those tulips in Tasmania (see last post at the Botanical Gardens, Hobart) here are two more stunning photographs to share of a tulip farm in the North West of the island of Tasmania -a place called Wynyard - about 4 hours drive away from me. The view is looking northy- west slightly, with Bass Strait in the background.
It was a wet, wild, blustery weekend, but they still had lots of flowers! They grow for bulbs to sell, mostly, so the flowers are a secondary thing for them. Note the beautiful chocolate brown soil from this area - volcanic in origin they say. This is a big dairy area and a food bowl as well.

Guest Designer for this week
Hello ladies. This is Richa Maurya from India. I am a doctor by profession and crafter by passion. I am a relatively new crafter and blogger. For the first time I tried quilling for a Mother's Day gift. And I was amazed by how a piece of paper can be turned into something so mesmerising. And that was the point I entered this amazing world of crafting. Since then I have tried to learn more and more from all my fellow crafters. I just love making cards. Unstampablles is really special for me. Its my good luck charm. Won my first badge here and got this wonderful opportunity for which I am highly grateful to the whole Unstampabelles team, especially Susan.

Coming to Guest Designer Inspiration. I was pretty worried after seeing the theme of the challenge. But then I thought of trying something new and completely out of my comfort zone. So I created a mixed media art journal page. My very first attempt at mixed media.
WOW - what a stunner this is - especially for a first attempt! Love how that image is just outside its frame too. An 'edgy' look as well!
More inspiration for you also from me
