No 1 (left) in this series is a coastal banksia - native to the sandstone shelves of coastal NSW. I love the structural form of the branches and cones as well as the white reverse of the leaves. Background is pale silver/blue.
No 2 (right) is a banksia serata. Famed as the Big Bad Banksia Man in May Gibbs books, 'Gumnuts Babies'. These gorgeous cones contain the most amazing shades of silver blue, charcoal and nut brown. Background is pale silver/blue.
These two look fabulous hanging together, or as a complete set with the others in the series as seen below.
