Gardens are Great, but the Bush is Best!

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.

It was on a recent walk in the Grampians that we spotted these beautiful native orchids in flower. So delicate and so delightful. Sometimes it really does pay to slow down.

Harvey Bay Tide 2

The great thing about getting away is visiting new places, getting new perspectives, and firing up your inspiration. How stirring nature can be.
