Appreciation


Today I was notified that this blog has reached 100 followers! I am very grateful to all of  you, all over the world.

This blog started as way to link family to our travels. It is now more of a garden blog. As a huge thank you to all of you, I send you this red rhododendron – prolific and special – may your own writings and blogging be abundant and extraordinary!

Thank you!

A garden lookout


Record rainfall over the last few months have prevented me from spending time in the garden. We have had snow, wind, hail and low level flooding! What a winter!

I guess this little fellow is waiting patiently for my return. Shortly, I will be able to show off my new veggie patch and restored chicken house – now a potting shed! Waiting for the sun and some warm weather. Look out for my posts soon.

Closer to home, this path leads to precious nature.

Tasmanian Idyll



Lost 

in never ending time;

Swept by barren winds:

Sand and sail and sea

Found in beauty

And peace.

We walked the dogs

and talked

that morning

along the Tamar

Tree of LifeĀ 


After our wintry summer in the Czech Republic we have returned filled with newfound vigour and hope.

Life does deal us remarkable events. This beautiful tree in Northern Tasmania, near Boat Harbour has come to symbolise new family connections and the strengthening of familial bonds – both near and far.

Snow bound


We are in southern Bohemia visiting new found family members and mesmerised by the snow covered countryside.
