My first love? Nature. I couldn’t live without my daily immersion, walking in the woods, visiting our waterfall or sitting by the river watching the birds going about their business. It is where I connect to the “peace which passes all understanding.” I have a degree in horticulture, tend too many gardens around my home and garden for a few clients. I blog… and love it, especially enjoying exchanges with this awesome blogging community.

I travelled a bit in my younger days, but like Dorothy said, “There’s no place like home.” So my life revolves around our little sanctuary of 7.5 acres, taking care of the gardens, house and family that fill my heart with gratitude and contentment. I feel truly blessed!

    Being in Nature is such a healing balm to the senses. I can well understand why you love the country. I get very ‘down’ when I haven’t got a bit of green space around me in the inner city suburbs where I live. I’m totally envious of your having a river and waterfall.

    Just trying to work out where you live what with being under snow at this time of year?

    Hello, I’ve seen your comments on many of the blogs I follow and dropped in to meet you. I have a suburban garden after owning a 30 acre olive farm. Would love to read about your woods, river and waterfall, as I miss my farm. Jane.

    Hi Eliza

    Hope you’re keeping well. I’m not sure whether you remember me, I used to blog at WaywardScribbles. But recently I’ve launched my new website. It would be great if you could visit and share your thoughts on it.


    Hoping to see you around. Thank you!

    Hi Eliza,
    I’ve seen you on mutual blogs, so I’m popping in to say hello, and I look forward to reading more about you. I feel the same about nature and your 7.5 acres sounds amazing. My husband and I camp and backpack and it’s such a tranquil and awesome experience of being among nature where silence is welcomed, except for the birdsong and whispers of wind through the trees.
    Take care, Lauren
