Bright Blooms Brighten the Day

A lockdown that lingers can’t stop beautiful blooms, the sight of which brighten the day, especially working from home!

So glad it’s springtime in the southern hemisphere.

Early morning inspiration

My best ideas rarely come sitting in front of a computer. Being out in the garden is inspirational. It’s one of the places where I can wonder, ponder, imagine and daydream. It’s my go-to space between bouts of writing.

We All Need Inspiring Spaces

It’s spring in the southern hemisphere. Even though we are still in lockdown, my garden, which is drenched in sunshine and blooms, is an inspiring space — not just for me but all the creatures that live there.

Have you had your fix of nature today?

I often get some of my best ideas out in the garden, when I feel as if I’m not thinking about anything at all. And then, SUDDENLY… a brilliant idea. Or at least a creative one.
Today is the first day of spring. Flowers are in bloom, the sun is shinning, and walking past this little patch of flowers, not far from my front door, feels fab.
Being out in nature is a great way to guard against lockdown blues. Have you had your fix of nature today?

Time to Bloom

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.

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

busy-bees-spring-2016-sep

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.
