The Houseboat

An unforgettable experience

Exploring  

the Riverina region

adventures in fishing

scenic river trip

stopping by

walking tracks

to view

spectacular cataract falls.

~

A picnic lunch

by the falls, refreshing

then to the caves

the amazing formation

of stalactites and stalagmites

the glow worms

an impression of

all eyes on you!

~

Further on

in the bush

wild koalas

munching

gum leaves

high up the eucalyptus trees

the kookaburra was there

in the limelight

the king of the bush!

~

Back to the houseboat

after an exciting

day of adventure

watching

the setting sun

reflecting

on the river

the silhouette

picturesque

to capture.

~

Stars gazing into the night

tranquil silence

a light breeze

the gentle river

flows

all is still

through

the night

of bright tomorrows …

Wanderlust

The rainforest

wildflowers and wild birds

They are the miracles

if we choose to

not blindly pass through.

~

Will we choose to wander

never to behold

the beauty

the mundane is

so eager to offer?

~

A world so pristine

awaits on

the tips of our lashes.

Rainforest Canopy

Sunlight shimmered

across rippling waters

The towering redwood trees

by the mountain lake

Small but cosy cabins

Nature hikes

Picnic by the falls

or a swim

Picturesque views of

the Yarra Valley

Campsites nestled amongst

the rainforest reserve

Beautiful variety of wildlife

birds and trees, native flowers

It’s summer magic!

Beyond The Blue Sky …

And the raindrops

tumble all around

Heaven opens so magically

There’s a rainbow somewhere

beyond the blue sky

There’s sunshine

and bluebirds singing

chiming in the breeze

Bluebells dancing

as the clouds drift away.

Splendour In The Park

One September morn

gliding on the lake

a swan so fine

as graceful as

the birds that soar

twittering songs of spring

when at a glance

thousands of jonquils

swaying and dancing

fluttering in the breeze

I saw

spring’s glorious splendour

such joy and pleasure

my heart sings

O what a beautiful morning…

Acacia Gold

Under blue skies

twittering birds

around the golden wattle

a charming home

on a hilltop


Garden Of Roses

The beautiful Jacaranda tree

in full bloom

of blue and purple hues

Butterflies flit freely

beside the lake of sparkling waters

Rose shrubs of spicy perfume

attract the birds of the air

whistling a happy tune

with praise and gratitude

to the Creator of all things

bright and beautiful

My heart with pleasure sings

on this glorious spring day.

Softly In The Garden

Cascading raindrops

in the garden

where butterflies

flutter amongst the flowers

freshly scented softly

softly the rain

on newly shorn

blades of grass

~

Birdsongs

put smiles on

this earth to

remind us

never to despair

It is a glorious morning

Sweeter Than Honey

Ripe fruit sweeter than honey

Sweet flowers like perfumed roses

Summer’s beauty in love’s song

The songbird sings for joy

The songbird sings for joy.

Love’s Rhapsody

‘Tis glorious morning

the melodious birds

sing a song

like ten thousand

mandolins echo

dawn’s chorus

to the dancing

flowers of joy

in dazzling splendour

this beautiful morning.

Colours Of Spring

Dewdrops awaken

the buds of spring

Refreshing dew

like the songbird’s

melody of joy

The colours of spring

vibrant floral arrays

celebrating Creation’s beauty

of splendour in nature.

In The Cool, Cool Of The Morning

Garden of Paradise

Exotic flora

Hanging flower baskets

of wild orchids

Terracotta pots

of red and white anthuriums

on the patio.

~

To the garden

of Bougainvillea vines

Bright green bamboo plants

delicate foliage

beside stream

of golden Japanese koi

swimming in shoals.

~

Rooftop café

with a view

of the hills

and tropical fruit farm

Early morning quietude

over breakfast

delicious pastries

A light breeze

and the harmony

of birds twittering

in a conducive

garden environment

A bliss of serenity.

Song Of Inspiration

The beauty of nature

Each changing season

A breath of inspiration.

Summer In The Gardens

In the gardens

surrounded by lakes

Treed setting

Spreading green lawns

A season of new growth.

~

Summer’s song of

twittering birds in

gatherings under blue skies

Splashes of vivid

coloured flowers

lavender hues

lingering scent

Wonders of ripeness

of the season.

~

The rock garden

hardy succulents

miniature shrubs

enjoying full sunshine

displaying amazing

splendour this summer.

 

The Green Sanctuary

Hidden island

Rural forested

Paths less explored

Eco-friendly park

Cool tree ferns

Cascading waterfalls

Meandering streams

Schools of fish

The green sanctuary.

A Nightingale Sings

As evening shadows fall

A nightingale perched on a tree branch

sings by the light of the silvery moon

The twinkling stars

glittering like diamonds

across the pink sky

Sparkling waves on the lake

dancing a moonlight crescendo

a moonlight crescendo.

Melody Of Spring

Season’s song

of April showers

flowers for the bees

warm days of beauty

colours and blooms

the robin red-breast

chirping merrily

garden of roses

hues of love.

~

Breath of spring

blow cool

and gentle breeze

smiling sunshine

days upon the earth

budding buds

of growth in season

sweet music

of dreams.

 

 

 

Rhythm Of Life

The foliage

of autumn’s

bronze and gold

raindrop showers

songbirds harmonise

the rhapsody of love.

~

Flowers glistening

in the rain

dancing, swaying

to the breeze

the world’s delight.

~

Crystal clear stream

flowing gently

rippling

sounds of nature’s

evergreen

rhythm of life.

River Red Gum Country

Riverboat cruises

downstream

Meandering river

Sunlight streaming through pine trees

Eucalyptus gums

Koalas hugging trunks

Kangaroos hip-hoppiting

Joeys in the pouch

Colourful parakeets

perched on branches of ti-trees

Birdcalls echo through the forest

in bush country.
