Native Bunch | A touch of Australian Curry
WA Curry flower
The WA Curry flower used in our Posy last week proved to be very popular. Like little bursts of white and yellow stars this flower is so named because of its scent of curry. There is a beautiful painting of Curry flowers held at the National Library of Australia painted in the 1880's by a woman called Ellis Rowan. Known as 'The Plant hunter' she was a prolific painter of Australian & NZ flora winning accolades the world over for her beautiful paintings. Seemingly a woman before her time in 1902 Ellis was one of the first women to have a 'face lift' after which she promptly dyed your hair bright red! At her peak, Ellis, much to the annoyance of male artists such as Norman Lindsay, Tom Roberts and Arthur Streeton, was celebrated the world over for her art. A thoroughly modern woman.
