Took a break at lunchtime in the front garden, and watched the antics of this wattlebird that occasionally poked its head out of the grevillea it spends so much time in. It was spying on me, checking what I was up to.
A few minutes in the garden can feel so refreshing. It’s one of the pleasures of working from home.
My best ideas rarely come sitting in front of a computer. Being out in the garden is inspirational. It’s one of the places where I can wonder, ponder, imagine and daydream. It’s my go-to space between bouts of writing.
It’s spring in the southern hemisphere. Even though we are still in lockdown, my garden, which is drenched in sunshine and blooms, is an inspiring space — not just for me but all the creatures that live there.

I often get some of my best ideas out in the garden, when I feel as if I’m not thinking about anything at all. And then, SUDDENLY… a brilliant idea. Or at least a creative one.

Being out in nature is a great way to guard against lockdown blues. Have you had your fix of nature today?

How wonderful to step outside the front door and see the eucaplyptus silver princess in bold, bright bloom. No wonder the bees are attracted to it. And they are not the only ones. Even my little neighbours, aged 18 months and three, wonder at its beauty — the way the umbels pop their tops, and the blooms splay out.
This glorious gumnut brightens the day.
