Time to Bloom

Nature often reminds us that we all have our time to bloom. And sometimes, being accompanied makes our bloom ever better.

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.

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.’

‘It’s a great place for calmness and quiet.’

So Intricate, So Delicate… Yet So Strong

How can a flower which is so intricate and so delicate stand up to whipping winds and heavy rain? Strength, it seems, is not always where we most expect to find it.

How wonderful to be out in the garden — if not with hands in soil, then at least observing, taking in delights of nature.
