Comfrey the near “Cure All”

I have to say that as I get older, I have less faith in my local GP to give me solutions to my ailments. I am not happy these days to just pop another pill or two. I am becoming increasingly aware of what goes into my body. I am always on the lookout for…

Nature & I, we are one.

It’s 5am on a Saturday morning, our new puppy has woken me for his toilet stop and breakfast. I stumbled out of bed barely able to open my eyes. Mainly due to a very tough night with him. Once outside in the garden, I begin to truly wake up. The slight cool morning chill hits…

Life is too short

Just a reminder that no day is ever promised to us. There are no guarantees that we will get another tomorrow. Unfortunately, we are all very aware of this. Yet, we seem to forget or dismiss it as we go about living our lives. Then without warning someone is taken from us and suddenly we…

Our peaceful zone

I hope that every single person has a special place to escape to whenever they need to. A place that fills your heart with peace, joy and hope. A place where you can recharge and re-energize. So that you can soldier on, to another day with a heart filled with positivity & hope.

No Place In The World……Like This

I sit here today, trying to decide what to talk about with you…….then I glance out the window and bang! I am lost in the wonders of nature. The natural beauty of the Australian bush that surrounds me, well, it just blows me away. No matter which angle I look at, what lens I look…

The most precious resource

Rain at last!! Yippee, we can barely contain our excitement here in Queensland, Australia. Here in Esk, we have been experiencing the driest conditions. It has been like this for quite some time. It has been a struggle keeping the water up to our beautiful gardens. Our Comfrey seems to struggle at the slightest bit…

Who is that looking at me???

Don’t you just hate it when you look in the mirror and see what appears to be an old person looking back at you. I mean who is this person anyway?? I know it cannot possibly be me, no way am I that old yet!! I feel young at heart and full of hope for a great life, so how could this be me? Right??

Giving thanks to Mother Nature

Spending my day yesterday, in the garden had me thinking. This is always a possibility after being surrounded by nature. I took in all of the beauty that surrounded me. The life around me was abundant and simply beautiful. The bees were frantically buzzing as they went about the day’s work. They are always such…

What strange times 2021

I sit here typing away as our government announces another lock down due to Covid outbreaks. These are very unusual times that we find ourselves in at the moment. But, here in Queensland, we have been so, so, lucky. Yes we have had to wear masks more than we’d like, and maybe we can’t always…

with rain, comes hope

So here in beautiful Queensland, we have had some much needed rain. As far as the eye can see there is a beautiful green to the land that hasn’t been seen for some time. The gardens are growing and happy. At least for now they do not need to want for moisture. They can grow…

Cool weather aches & pains

Here in sunny??? Queensland, we are fortunate to get some much needed rain. With the rain and the change of season, we have a little cool weather hanging around. So, with the cool weather, for a lot of us, this also means aches & pains. Why is it that we start to hurt and generally…

It’s almost sale time

Only hours left before we start our sale. I have been busy preparing for it all. So busy that I accidentally went on and already reduced our prices. Oh well, it’s only a few hours early. I really hope that you’re all ready to visit us and have a look at the reduced prices. Our…

The realization of how lucky I am

We have had quite a blessed life. I feel so so lucky to have had the life I have. I have a wonderful husband, of 30 years, who just adores me, 4 amazing sons, a lovely daughter-in-law who blessed us with a beautiful granddaughter that has filled our lives and hearts with love and laughter.

While my start to life was not easy, my childhood filled with unspeakable happenings. But, as I sit here today, all I can see and feel is wonderful, beautiful things. Suddenly here I am in my fifties and finally the realization came that I have had an amazing life. I have always known that I was happy and had a lot of good around me. As I have grown older in years, I have grown to become so different to the me that I was in my youth. There’s more compassion, empathy and consideration of others. I can manage to find good in everything and everyone. I also have less tolerance for negativity and drama. Some say I walk around with rose coloured glasses, not really seeing things as they are. But, the truth is that’s fine by me. Because, I really just want to see the world, the way that I want to see it.

  • I want to see kindness and empathy in my community.
  • I want to see love, kindness, support and respect within my family.
  • I want my friends to know they are such a huge important part of my life.
  • I want to see more acceptance for those that are seen as “different”.
  • I want the world to know in their hearts, that kindness and love towards others, is the ultimate healer, to give us all hope for a remarkable future.
  • I want everyone I know, see or meet to know that they are valuable and worthy of a great life too.
  • I just want everyone to be happy.

While financially our struggles are real and have always been there from the beginning. That pales in comparison to the great things that I have witnessed, experienced, seen, felt, heard and been a part of throughout my adult life. Yes, I will admit, there have been many dark days along the way. But, with help and support from others we somehow always come out the other side and forge ahead to find that happy place again.

Life truly is the most wonderful gift. I encourage you to take the time and really look for all those good things in your life. Look for all those moments and those people that lifted you up. Those days when the greatest of memories were created. Forget the bad, that crap is everywhere!!! Forget those negative people, they are probably not the right people for you anyway. You don’t need them.

Just focus for now, on only the good. Take the time to appreciate the gift of life and show gratitude for each and every day you’ve had and still have coming. We each hold the power to have a fantastic, great, amazing, wonderful life. I hope that you all find your power and have a life to be as brilliant as mine has been.
