Can you think of a title for my new book?

Front Garden dry creek

I’m just about to submit the first five chapters of my next non-fiction book. ALL I NEED IS A TITLE. IF YOU CAN THINK OF ONE I’d sure like to hear it. Just drop a line on the contact page of my website http://www.michelegierck.com.au

This book is a post-injury come-back story in which the bush, the ocean and a bloke (a fellow) all play their part.

Here’s the pitch.

When Michele, a broken down sojourner (kind of Liz Gilbertish), meets Mac, a dedicated river scientist (think a young David Attenborough), she is drawn into his orbit, the gravity of which propels her onto an uncharted trajectory.

If you’d like to know more about this book, like the title and publication details, just sign up to the newsletter on my website.

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.’

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.’

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.

Bee-autiful

The simple beauty of an Australian summer: my crepe myrtle in full bloom, and all the visiting bees. Bee-autiful!

The crepe myrtle breaks into bloom each December and then blooms for the rest of summer. It’s such a treat to see — right by the front door.

The perfect place to take a break from writing, and ponder.
