The reddish/orange wattle arches in the foreground. The yellow wattle stands taller in the background. A little red grevillea between the two. Such inspiration can be found, even in this tiny patch of the world that’s my front garden.
Taking a five-minute break out in the garden can be so refreshing — especially for those of us who work for home.
Michele comments, ‘The wattle birds are not the only species who enjoy being around grevilleas. So do I. This one pictured is often in bloom, colourful, and provides food and shelter for native birds.’

(This azalea is right near my front door, and I must have walked by tons of times without even noticing it.)
Oh for a little sunshine, and the slowness and spaciousness in which to enjoy it.
