Another look at the Gymnocalycium pflanzii and the other buds that are forming on it. It’s really going for it! Posted three photos in succession so that you can appreciate the true beauty of this plant. 🌱

I’m currently taking a break from uni (I just signed to take another year off and will be returning in 2020), and I’m focusing a lot of my energy on my plants whilst I nurture my self confidence in relation to my illustrations. I’m also spending a lot of time doing clay, too, so my creativity is still up there! But I’m just trying to free myself from the limitations I’d put on myself for what I should/shouldn’t post on this account and for now it’s going to be a mishmash! 🎉 I hope you all enjoy this mishmash of plants, illustration and polymer clay. Woo!
Flower from my previous post. We turned away from it for five minutes and came back to it and it was completely open. It’s beautiful how much a flower can change in such a short time.

Our Gymnocalycium pflanzii has started to bloom fully! There are a few more buds on this cactus that have a bit more growing to do, so we have more blooms to look forward to! Such a gorgeous flower and one of the most unique I’ve seen on a cactus.
M O N D A Y M O T I V A T I O N 🌵As this week begins, here’s a shout to follow Julieta & Alejandra who have started a joint venture @thecuriousbeetle helping change-makers create a successful business with a force for good. I’m really enjoying their informative posts and it will be exciting to watch it grow. Julieta posted this amazing image on her @design.junkie account. “Risk more than others think is safe. Dream more than others think is practical. The flower that blooms in adversity is the rarest and most beautiful of all”. (Image @layeredvintage@ariellevey) This struck a personal chord with me, having started my own new business only 18 months ago. It made me think also of the Australian plant seeds which only start to grow after being exposed to extreme heat! If you’re thinking of starting a new venture or making a big change, I hope this helps motivate you to be the change you want to see. The seeds are in you! Jehane x
