Striking Pink Petals in Autumn Sun

IMG_0090

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.

Bee-autiful

The simple beauty of an Australian summer: my crepe myrtle in full bloom, and all the visiting bees. Bee-autiful!

The crepe myrtle breaks into bloom each December and then blooms for the rest of summer. It’s such a treat to see — right by the front door.

The perfect place to take a break from writing, and ponder.

Delicate Wings

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.

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.
