Need a little inspiration? Just check out this flowering gumnut which must pop its top to flower. It’s as if it loses a little of itself to become all it can be. How life can be like that.
My new book, Fraying: Mum, memory loss, the medical maze and me has just been launched. Available as a paperback or ebook, it features many scenes from my garden – many of which, including this gumnut, appear on this blog.
In the ‘comments’ below, you will be able to read comments on Fraying from readers who were quick off the mark to get a copy.
The sensational Wimbledon men’s final, last night, created such a buzz. And this morning, even my eucalyptus silver princess is buzzing. Inspiration is all around.
For those of you in other parts of the world, Wimbledon began last night at 11pm Australian east coast time, and finished around 3.30am. So all I feel capable of this morning is standing in the sun and taking photos. The writing will have to wait a while today.
What a fabulous surprise, spotting the first gumnut now in radiant bloom (with others about to pop their tops). How often the sheer beauty of nature is breathtaking. Such a sight stirs the senses and makes for a marvellous morning.
