Striking Pink Petals in Autumn Sun

IMG_0090

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.

Slow Down, Look Around

IMG_9176 (2)

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.

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!

Taking Time, Slowing Down,

threecyclamens

Sometimes such delight can be found by slowing down, and seeing what’s right at our feet — like these red cyclamens, two bathed in winter sunshine.
