Spring break

With 2017 being such a strain on my head space for a number of reasons, it was a joy to recently have a week off and indulge in some extended me-time. The objective being to organise my pastels into new storage boxes, spend at least two days drawing, and last but not least I wanted visit Tamborine Mountain Botanic Gardens and photograph the Spring blossoms.

The weather was mixed during my break, much needed rain fell and sunshine was intermittent. At one point I didn’t think I would get to the Botanic Gardens but luck was on my side and as I was wandering through the rainforest garden the clouds disappeared and the rest of my time in the garden was perfect. Spring is such a beautiful time of year, lots of birds, bees and after a shower of rain everything looks and smells so fresh. As you can see, it was time well spent and I felt so relaxed and happy afterwards that I almost forgot about having to go back to work.

    I love it when towns, cities, provinces/regions etc. not only allocate green space for any reason, but also acknowledge the upkeep responsibilities. While they will no doubt generate some income, I don’t believe that any green space actually pays for itself, and they certainly don’t pay much (if any) property taxes. My hat comes off in respect of all the various levels of government that see the value in “green space” of any sort. πŸ™‚

      I think too many councils or government departments dismiss the importance of green space because they can see no financial gain. Green space helps to create a sense of community, a place for gathering together and enjoying life among nature. I’m glad that we have free access to these spaces, and that there are people who love looking after them and sharing them with everyone.
