Spring, Busy Bees, Sunshine


Spring, like today’s sunshine, has finally arrived. The bees are busy, and blossoms are blooming. It’s the season of surprises — at least in the garden.

‘When I’m not working on my latest commission — a biography — I’m likely to be out in the garden, delighting in each new bloom. Gardens, like nature, are such a source of inspiration,’ says Michele Gierck.

Who will be open today? Who will pop their top?

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.

You can find out more about Fraying at my website: http://www.michelegierck.com.au

New places, new perspectives … and inspiration.

The great thing about getting away is visiting new places, getting new perspectives, and firing up your inspiration. How stirring nature can be.

We All Need Our Time To Bloom


Whipping winds, cool temperatures, and smashing hail could not deter this clivia from blooming. Natural evidence that when it’s time to bloom, get on with it and BLOOM.

And how we all need our time to bloom.
