Who will be open today? Who will pop their top?

gumnut opens

Need a little inspiration? Just check out this flowering gumnut which must pop its top to flower. It’s as if it loses a little of itself to become all it can be. How life can be like that.

My new book, Fraying: Mum, memory loss, the medical maze and me has just been launched. Available as a paperback or ebook, it features many scenes from my garden – many of which, including this gumnut, appear on this blog.

In the ‘comments’ below, you will be able to read comments on Fraying from readers who were quick off the mark to get a copy.

You can find out more about Fraying at my website:
