I love my garden. To dig, cultivate even weeding is a joy I never tire of. First thing in a morning, before breakfast, even before I check my computer, I will go round to see that all the plants are ok. In the late afternoon, after the heat of the day has died down and I have spent time watering and caring for my plants, it is my favourite time to sit on the deck, coffee or wine in hand and just admire the beauty of nature.
Today I came across this quote from Georgia O’Keeffe
When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it’s your world for the momentI want to give that world to someone else.Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower
I want them to see it, whether they want to or not…
I hope you have enjoyed really looking with me at just some of the flowers that are flaunting their beauty in my garden at the moment.
Finally I must share this tropical Heliconia that has just come into flower. For all those tiny ants scuttling busily around it, this is certainly their world for the moment and a sure sign that the heat and humidity of summer has arrived down under.
