Just like flowers in the garden, we can never be sure when we, or those around us, are going to bloom.
This flower, a grevillea, which for quite some time I thought was an evergreen, suddenly burst into flower seven years after I first noticed it!
Just shows that sometimes in life it’s worth the wait.
One of two places I love: the garden and the library.
Two things I love: stories and flowers.

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.

Looking up from my kitchen window, I spotted this delightful artistic-looking autumn view — reds, yellows, greens.
So good to open our eyes to what’s right where we are.

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.

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, 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.

What a sight — bright wonderful winter wattle. Another sign that spring in Australia is not far away.
