Autumn Blooms

Dear Readers, in the southwest corner of Australia we’ve been experiencing an unusually wet April. As I look out through the window now, rain softly falls, and the garden is a lush green more characteristic of May or June. Before its winter sleep, my favourite rosebush (‘Mother’s Love’) has flowered prolifically throughout the month, and I hope the photos below will bring a smile to your heart, as these blooms do to mine.

These few lines came, while I sat on a step beside this rose:

 

Love walks the spaces
The gaps between words
Its threads cross synapses, invisible
Uncurling between heartbeats
Love flows
Its ribbons twine life with life
In the bloom of constellations
In the touch of a finger
In an unwinding frond
Love whispers
In the spaces between

 

Enjoy the spirals and spaces of the rose, the golden ratio in living form …. 🙂

Because it’s Spring…

With greetings and love to you all, from my garden, wild and rambling, brimming with life, heaven on earth. 🙂

Wishing a beautiful autumn/fall to my friends in the north, and happy spring to my fellow ‘southsiders’.

Firstly, white daisies, with thirteen petals…
