This painting depicts the dreaming about bush yam or potatoes. The trees are green all year round. When the flowers are on the tree the women know that the potatoes are ready to dig for. They are deep in the ground, sometimes more than one meter. The women gather then in the coolamons.

Rosie is full of dynamic knowledge about her stories shown in the paintings she creates. Rosie grew up in the Tanmi Desert and walked along her story lines. Her depth of character and hardship she has endured has caused her to produce beautiful creations of Dreamtime using colourful bold linework and dots. Her love and dedication to Warlpiri Culture and family is born out in the art she creates.
