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.
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.
It’s easy to get so involved in the chaotic pace of life, in doing, that sometimes we forget to slow down and look around.
I spotted this wattle bird in my front garden, in what appears to be its favourite grevillea. It was so delightful to take a break from all my writing, and actually see the birds just outside my window.
