Taking a Break in the Garden

IMG_0095 (2)

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.’

Striking Pink Petals in Autumn Sun

Striking pink petals, with a patch of redish-pink dots, lit up in autumn sunshine.
(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.

Delicate Wings

What delicate wings. What fragility, yet strength. Another inspiring spring delight. Wouldn’t it be grand to be able to fly!

What a wonderful way to spend a break — after hours in front of a screen — discovering simple joys to be found in the garden.

Such are the musings of an up-to-her-neck-in-work writer.

Natural Beauty

Spring Clivias Sep 2015

Spring is such a wonderful time of natural beauty, of slowing down, of treading carefully, of celebrating nature — all those brilliant blooms in the garden.

It’s also a great time to start a new writing project!

Finding Delightful Places

gumnutbloom1jul2015

Life has so many twists and turns. And delights. Sometimes that delight can be as simple as a new bloom in the garden, in sparkling winter sunshine. What’s your delightful place? Or space?

For those who have read my latest book, Fraying: Mum, memory loss, the medical maze and me. this pic is of the last gift my mother ever gave me — a eucaplyptus silver princess. ¬†Perhaps that, in part, is why I’m so drawn to it, keenly watching each bursting bloom, as each umbel pops its top.
