Appreciating a Tiny Patch of The World

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 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.

Slow Down, Look Around

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!
