As you may know, I’ve been sharing my husband’s answers recently in my Share Your World posts, and it’s been fun to hear your responses.  Last week  I…

Blogger Recognition Award

Earlier this week I was thrilled to read a post on Klaudia’s Corner, which coincidentally included a link to my Deb’s World blog.  Klaudia was nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award and, as part of the requirements, she had to nominate 15 other bloggers passing on the blogging love. It’s been a constant source of amazement to me, this blogging community.…

Vanish, invisible mending – a poem I found

While cycling in New Zealand recently I found this poem in a delightful little book about the local area. Reading through it, I found it really hit a chord with me.  The book was one of many available for visitors to flick though in one of the guest houses (Tiger Hill Lodge) we stayed in, probably to help showcase the…

Magnetic Poetry Saturday Challenge #7 – Garden

Over the weekend I was inspired to plant some bright colourful flowers in my sun-room/conservatory/hothouse/she-shed/glasshouse/orangery – call it what you will – and I marveled at the peace that one gets when digging, planting and creating something new.

Keeping it local – Weekly Photo Challenge

I don’t mean to whinge but it has been a very wet spring with our annual rainfall usually 985mm a year. So far this year we are already well over 1200mm with almost 3 months of the year still to go!

Wordless Wednesday – demise of the bendy tree

Welcome to Wordless Wednesday  On this very spot used to stand my favourite tree, ‘bendy tree’ which I would silently greet every time I went out for a walk.  Today on my walk this pile of newly harvested trees was in its place.  The thing is that my bendy tree was a gum tree, not a pine tree, but it must have…
