Gardens are Great, but the Bush is Best!

145MtFrankland4

Gardens are great, but it’s hard to beat a hike in the bush. There’s something about those tall tress and even the xanthorrhoeas. They are magical. Tramping through this bush is wonderful. Everything else, from city living, just seems to fade away.

This photo was taken at MtFrankland, in Western Australia.

A Pink Bloom — A Way of Remembering

A crisp day, a little sunshine and an autumn bloom. It’s the kind of scene my late mother would have loved. Out in the garden, I often remember her.

Taking a Break in the Garden

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.’

Slow Down, Look Around

It’s easy to get so involved in the chaotic pace of life, in doing, that sometimes we forget to slow down and look around.

I spotted this wattle bird in my front garden, in what appears to be its favourite grevillea. It was so delightful to take a break from all my writing, and actually see the birds just outside my window.
