Cyclamens Seem to Sing

My first view of the world each morning is framed by colourful spring flowers. The cyclamens are so vibrant, so colourful, they almost seem to sing.

First Spring Bloom

08-21FirstSpringBloom13The prospect of spring is warming for the soul. At least for mine. Spring is such a time of hope, of possibilities, of nature at its brightest. No wonder I gaze with joy at the first spring bloom.

Double Delight


Yesterday I stood in the brisky wintery air admiring the little gumnuts at the top of the eucaplyptus silver princess. The tree, the last gift given to me by my mother before she died, is now in flower. And it seems it’s not just me who delights in each bloom. So too this honey eater, pecking away at nectar.

And having this image, a visual reminder of nature’s beauty, makes it doubly delightful.
