We All Look for Our Nectar

IMG_0728 (2)

Springtime. Blossoms bloom and bees buzz. This scene reminds me that we are all looking for a little nectar of our own.

And the garden is the perfect place to take a break. Relax. Be absorbed in the moment. In each bloom.

Slow down: see the natural beauty

It was on a recent walk in the Grampians that we spotted these beautiful native orchids in flower. So delicate and so delightful. Sometimes it really does pay to slow down.

Time to Bloom

Just like flowers in the garden, we can never be sure when we, or those around us, are going to bloom.

This flower, a grevillea, which for quite some time I thought was an evergreen, suddenly burst into flower seven years after I first noticed it!

Just shows that sometimes in life it’s worth the wait.

One of two places I love: the garden and the library.
Two things I love: stories and flowers.

Taking a Break in the 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.’

Michele Gierck is a writer, who loves nature. She says the garden has become a special place full of daily delights.

‘It’s a great place for calmness and quiet.’
