How do my hexagons grow?

Following on from my confessions yesterday, I admit I also have an obsession with hexagons. I have helped design and build a hexagonal house - not one big hexagon, but comprising a number of hexagonal units. I even doodle hexagons. So when I saw these designs, I just had to use them. This is my version of Melody Johnson's Bodacious Bloomers. If you're familiar with Tumbling Blocks, you may recognise that the "leaves" are actually the diamonds that form the sides of the blocks. There is actually more contrast in this work than the photo shows.

The second photo is a background I made, but haven't got a use for at present. I just liked it.

We used to doodle hexagonal houses as our dream home before we were married. Then real life finances entered the picture and we bought a shoebox. :)
Love your hexagonal flower though, they're gorgeous.
