“After rain, y’know it grows like that, sometime. It grows like that and then sun shines it sometimes reaches the leaves and flowers weak and all go down. Yeah, but the colour’s still there. Spring, in that spring, sometimes flowers grow like green and strong.”
Bendy flowers, or dandelion (taraxacum asteracae), that blossom around Epenarra during the wet season are one of the favourite subjects of Epenarra Artist Kaye Beasley. When the wet subsides, the heads of these flowers dry up and droop towards the ground, forming the shape that the Kaye has captured in her paintings.
