The name 'La Nina - Mother of Abundance' was a reference to the around seven to eight year cyclic climatic conditions affecting our Flora and Flora. Then there's the fact that my mother's name was Nina so really it's a playful reference to her and of course Waltzing Matilda and our Australian landscape. An interpretation of an old Australian ballad 'Waltzing Matilda' highlighting flora, fauna and typical imagery from the Australian bush.
