I Spy … a Wattlebird who Spies Me

Took a break at lunchtime in the front garden, and watched the antics of this wattlebird that occasionally poked its head out of the grevillea it spends so much time in. It was spying on me, checking what I was up to.

A few minutes in the garden can feel so refreshing. It’s one of the pleasures of working from home.

Bright Blooms Brighten the Day

A lockdown that lingers can’t stop beautiful blooms, the sight of which brighten the day, especially working from home!

So glad it’s springtime in the southern hemisphere.

Early morning inspiration

My best ideas rarely come sitting in front of a computer. Being out in the garden is inspirational. It’s one of the places where I can wonder, ponder, imagine and daydream. It’s my go-to space between bouts of writing.

We All Need Inspiring Spaces

It’s spring in the southern hemisphere. Even though we are still in lockdown, my garden, which is drenched in sunshine and blooms, is an inspiring space — not just for me but all the creatures that live there.

Have you had your fix of nature today?

I often get some of my best ideas out in the garden, when I feel as if I’m not thinking about anything at all. And then, SUDDENLY… a brilliant idea. Or at least a creative one.
Today is the first day of spring. Flowers are in bloom, the sun is shinning, and walking past this little patch of flowers, not far from my front door, feels fab.
Being out in nature is a great way to guard against lockdown blues. Have you had your fix of nature today?
