My home is in a bush setting in the outer suburbs of the city Melbourne in Australia. I love walking through the bush and sitting on my back verandah watching the native birds. The Australian bushland gives me inspiration to create. I write, paint, draw and I dabble at some craft work. I am also often found in my veggie patch picking or planting my latest crop. Amongst all these activities I also follow a type of meditation practice called Falun Dafa. I incorporate the principles of Falun Dafa practice, truth compassion and tolerance in everything I do. I hope readers enjoy my interesting stories about our environment, gardening, people and places.
