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.’

B is for Bee, and for Beautiful

Busy Bee 23 April 2017

B is for bee, and for beautiful. There’s joy to be had from simple moments in nature — like watching bees in a bush of rosemary as the autumn sun shines. Another beautiful relaxing day; a day off from writing.

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!

Taking Time, Slowing Down,

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.

The Tides of Our Lives

Harvey Bay Tide 2

Sometimes the tides of our lives make it near impossible to go anywhwere, to set sail. But don’t give up. As surely as tides go out, they also come back in — sometimes with a surge.
