Spring Flowers

So it's May already and here in Australia we are looking at the gradual decline into winter. So when I am faced with the oncoming cold I want to reach for the bright colours, flowers and butterflies to remind me that winter will end eventually.
With this in mind here is my latest creation for my sister's birthday.
