Welcome to this stamps, first-day covers and postcards gallery of mine euphemistically called Lets Talk Stamps. My desire here, is to show as often as I can, some of my presumed beauties and talk about them. And hopefully make Your Day in the bargain. In case you want a better view, JUST CLICK on the picture and it will be ENLARGED. Please also see my picture postcards blog www.mypicturepostcards.blogspot.in

In 1969, on completingdrawingsofalpine plantsfor theNational HerbariuminMelbourne, she commenced work on the two-volume limited edition book‘Wildflowers of south eastern Australia‘published in 1974. The original paintings for this work were purchased by the Victorian Ministry for the Arts, and presented to theLa Trobe Library.
