Jo and I worked together through two different community service organisations for years and years. When I left to pursue my full time quilting / teaching pathway, Jo gave me this beautiful Waratah. The gift was just perfect as we had worked for the past 6 years at Telopea which is the other name for Waratah. My fingers are not at all green so I worried about the fate of this wonderful plant.
Nearly two years later I am the proud owner of this most magnificent bloom. My life is also blooming and I have plenty of teaching work, many wonderful friendships have developed along the way and if I ignore household chores and other time wasters I also have time for my own quilting pleasure and for smelling the Roses...and the Waratahs.
Thanks Jo for the wonderful years and thanks John for watering it so lovingly all this time.
