ODE TO BEAUTIFUL SUN ORCHIDS
Gently swaying in the breeze,
Your faces follow the warm sunlight.
With bright pink sparkled sepals you please,
You are a magnificent sight!
You are a feast to my eyes that you feed,
And, you fill my heart with wondrous delight.
Your simplicity and fragility are rare indeed,
And, to care and protect you is absolutely right!
Thank you sweet orchids for your beauty and ease,
You are certainly a pleasure, it is your birthright…

I was fortunate in capturing this gorgeous photo of nesting couple of Rainbow lorikeets. Aren’t they beautiful! ❤ 🙂
The silence of nature,
soothes the body and soul.
Become as quiet as a lake,
and keep peace with your soul.

” When I look into the eyes of an animal, I do not see an animal. I see a living being. I see a friend. I feel a soul.” Anthony Douglas Williams.
I heard a familiar ‘wuaaaaaaawk’, and looked out my bedroom window and watched quietly as a couple of galahs rested in the tall blue gum tree in my front garden. They knew that I was there, and for a while quietly observed me :).
They apparently didn’t mind my intrusion and before long they continued with their antics, hanging upside down, feeding, playing and munching on wood.
It was utterly captivating and delightful watching them and I felt most privileged and blessed as they had allowed me into their precious lives, and hearts. 🙂 ❤
As we say goodbye to 2016, and welcome in 2017, this is a good time to stop and relax and reflect upon the year in passing, and to find the calm and silence within.
To be as still and calm as this tranquil lake, brings peace and awareness, as still waters run deep. I feel grateful to have experienced natures’ bounties on this the Eve of 2017!
I send much love and peace for 2017. May we all find calm and places of great beauty. Blessings to all, Bridget 🙂 ❤
Just love it when the Waterfalls flow…
For all whom need a little respite, from life’s difficulties and challenges, I’ve created this video and music. Relax in this beautiful forest and listen to the birds and trickling stream, and let your stress dissolve. Blessings, Bridget 🙂 ❤

I went for a walk in a Eucalyptus forest and met up with a beautiful Flame Robin (often called, robin redbreast) when I was on Bruny Island, Tasmania. He sang, and posed and watched me intensely -communicating with heart- before heading off to munch on some insects. It was a real treat! 🙂
I went for a walk yesterday and climbed to the top of Anstey Hill, in the Anstey Hill Recreation Park, which is situated on the North Eastern boundary of the Mount Lofty Ranges, otherwise known as the Adelaide Hills Face Zone. The Adelaide Hills are the result of the Eden/Burnside fault in which two sides have squeezed together, forcing up the land. Occasionally ‘earth tremors’ and even quakes, such as the 1954 quake are experienced in Adelaide, as a result of this fault.
Putting geology aside, the walk on this sunny Spring day, brought out myriad of insects, animals and birds. I saw a multitude of butterflies, parrots, wattle birds, wrens, tits and honey birds, and had a family of three red kangaroos spy on me and follow me for some time, up the rocky path. This photo is the juvenile of the group, being only half the size of his parents!
The Spring orchids were just emerging, with ‘blue fairies’ and ‘donkey orchids’ showing their upturned faces, and the scent of Spring flowers intoxicated my senses! 🙂
