Appreciating a Tiny Patch of The World

The reddish/orange wattle arches in the foreground. The yellow wattle stands taller in the background. A little red grevillea between the two. Such inspiration can be found, even in this tiny patch of the world that’s my front garden.

Striking Pink Petals in Autumn Sun

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.

It’s also a great time to start a new writing project!

threecyclamens

Sometimes such delight can be found by slowing down, and seeing what’s right at our feet — like these red cyclamens, two bathed in winter sunshine.
